Well the good news is you can and it’s at the 2016 edition of the Gentlemen’s Expo taking place on November 10th to 12th at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, South Building .
Here are just some of the attractions that you can see at this year’s show:
Underground Chef Co. Battle
If you’ve ever been to a UCC Chef Battle you know that the chefs are challenged to create several dishes from secret ingredients in a specific amount of time. It’s hot, loud and messy and the chefs will bring the audience into the kitchen to experience the frenzy.
The Chefs battling at this year’s event include veteran Chef Ted Reader (Ted’s World Famous BBQ) and the incredibly talented Chef Jeff Dueck (2ndFloor Events). The Chef Battle will be hosted by both Joe Friday (Founder of UCC) and Mike Ward (Formerly Food Editor-in-Chief of Canadian Living). There will also be an incredible panel of judges who will score each Chef.
