Some of Markham’s finest restaurants compete head-to-head at the Markham fair this Sunday for a chance to showcase their skills at The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair this November.
The Markham Fair was chosen as one of the six fairs from across Ontario to serve as host venues for qualifying local restaurant chefs. The Chefs will be asked to create dishes in 30 minutes using a “secret ingredient” locally grown or produced food products from the fairs agricultural competitions. The winning chefs from each fair will then face each other on the Food and Lifestyle Stage at The Royal in November.
Come to the Markham Fair and cheer on your local hero.
- Chef Dana Folco of Folco’s Ristorante in Markham
- Chef Pedro Pereira of Fishbone Bistro in Stouffville
- Chef Brian Simmons of Great Blue Heron Casino in Port Perry.
The Chef Challenge takes place on the cooking stage on October 5th and is hosted by Chef Ted Reader, “Godfather of the Grill”. Ted claims his quest in life to create “real food for real people” and has a passion for helping novice chefs.
Winners of The Road To The Royal Butter Tart Competition will also be announced!
