Masterchef Canada Season 5 Casting Now

If you didn’t know, I was Season 4 Runner-up for Masterchef Canada.  About a year ago I was encouraged by a previous Masterchef Canada winner, David Jorge, to apply.  ” no way! I wouldn’t be able to it.. there are so many good home cooks”.  Half a bottle of wine later I said, “why not!” and applied.

Little did I know that one split decision changed my life in so many ways.

Masterchef Canada is not all about winning (even though we all want to win); its about giving ordinary people with a passion for cooking the chance to follow their dreams.   I am that person. I lost the finale by the skin of my teeth but left as a winner because I am following my food dream.

So, for all those people who tell me they wish they could apply but don’t have the courage to do so; i am telling you, take 5 minutes out of your day  and tell us why you have a passion for cooking.  Who knows? Maybe you’ll be battling it out in the finale like me.

Check out my video below with details on how to apply

    Thanks for sharing Thea! I applied for Season 3 and unfortunately didn’t move on to the show in Toronto. It was still an amazing experience and I have considered applying for Season 6. Maybe coming across your post today is a nudge in that direction! Cheers,
