Cooking contest with fresh ingredients at Markham Fair

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 Brian Simmons of Great Blue Heron Casino in Port Perry.
