Chefs School students tops in Taste Canada challenge

Stratford Gazette

On Nov. 6, two Stratford Chefs School students received first place standing at the Taste Canada Awards Gala for a competition which took place over two days at the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto.

Emma House and Heather Mitchell, along with their assistant, Dan Lipton, cooked from Susan Semenak’s nominated book Market Chronicles: Stories & Recipes from Montreal’s Marché Jean-Talon to prepare her corn fritters with chipotle crema recipe.

Mitchell described the tension they experienced waiting for the temperature to come up on an induction burner: “It seemed to take forever, we had to chit-chat just to cover up our nerves,” she said.

The goal was to dazzle the judging panel which included Elizabeth Baird and Dana McAuley.

As winners, Mitchell and House received a Taste Canada trophy to display at the Stratford Chefs School until next year’s competition. They each also walk away with a title – Canada’s Best New Student Chef.

Stratford Chefs School culinary instructor and coach, Ian Middleton, was thrilled with the result.

“Heather and Emma put their knowledge and passion for cooking into the competition, they are a winning team,” he said.
