Debuting on Tuesday, February 4th at 9ep on Food Network Canada, Great Chocolate Showdown is an epic chocolate dessert competition series that we’re thrilled to be a part of.
Ten home bakers will compete in a range of creative chocolate-based challenges for a chance to win $50,000, using our bestselling chocolates as either ingredients or inspiration. Check out the trailer below!
Five of the bakers are Canadian—from British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatoon, Ontario and Quebec— and the remaining five bakers are from the States. Meet them all!
As for the judges, we’ve got award-winning British cake designer Cynthia Stroud, television personality and best-selling cookbook author Anna Olson and renowned pastry chef and chocolatier Steven Hodge.
Each week, the bakers will face a new chocolate-based challenge: creating an over-the-top spectacle cake or a reimagined campfire treat or a chocolate confection with a spicy kick.
Tune in every Tuesday starting February 4th at 9ep to see all of the challenges and root for your favourite contestant. You’ll also be able to catch up on episodes online at foodnetwork.ca the day after each episode airs.
