Top Chef Canada Season 2: Episode 3 Recap

March 27, 2012 Top Chef Canada

It’s a episode full of pregnant ladies this week, with our Season 1 host Thea back for this episode.

Top Chef Canada Season 2: Episode 2 Recap

March 20, 2012 Top Chef Canada

And we’re back for Episode 2! Quick thought right off the top – why didn’t the show move production to a new city for the new season like they do on original Top Chef? Think of all the fresh seafood they would have had access to in Halifax, or all the fun challenges they could have done […]

Top Chef Canada Season 2: Episode 1 Recap

March 15, 2012 Top Chef Canada

Yes yes y’all, I’m back for Season 2! This recap is late as I missed the first episode because I was (shamefully) watching some After the Final Rose shenanigans on Monday night.  I wasn’t really sure about taking on Season 2 Recaps, but a few friends and co-workers asked if I watched this week, and it kind of […]

Top Chef Canada: Episode 12 Recap

June 29, 2011 Top Chef Canada

And here we are at the penultimate episode my friends! I’m the first to admit, I have a little bit of Top Chef Canada fatigue. I think it was pretty obvious who the final 5 were going to be (see my early prediction from Episode 4; I had them all right except for Andrea), and at […]

Top Chef Canada: Episode 10 Recap

Chef Lynn Crawford’s in the house this week, and she’s got her hair did – it’s usually pretty wild on Pitchin’ In.

Top Chef Canada: Episode 8 Recap

May 31, 2011 Top Chef Canada

Thank you for all your comments after last week’s (rage-inducing) episode! Just one more interesting follow-up point before we get to this week’s show: Kristine remembered that on a Season 2 episode of Top Chef, the winner of the Elimination Challenge had their dish featured nationwide on the menu of T.G.I.Friday’s, so this wasn’t the first time a chain restaurant […]

Top Chef Canada: Episode 7 Recap

May 25, 2011 Top Chef Canada

Sorry for the late recap this week! I’ve been having some technical difficulties, and also I was distracted during this week’s episode so I had to re-watch it online. To be honest, I was annoyed by this whole episode, as you can see by the length of this post.    This episode started off with […]
