The Interior Provincial Exhibition is looking for some home cooks to showcase their talents in its Top Chef Competition.
The event, held during the 119th annual fair in Armstrong Aug. 29 to Sept. 2, will have four age categories for home cooks 10 and older.
“This is a revamped program of the IPE Iron Chef,” says Yvonne Paulson, IPE General Manager. “We wanted the competition to be about home cooks ages 10 and up. We have four categories. Junior 10 to 13, teens 14 to 18, adult 19+ and family, one adult and two children 10 to 18 years of age.”
Paulson says home cooks will compete head to head within their category to qualify for the finals on Sunday.
“We could see a junior home cook going up against an adult in the finals. Anything goes in the kitchen!”
The event will have a new location this year.
“The IPE Top Chef is in the Horticulture Building. Inside with plenty of seating to watch it all happen before your eyes. We will also select a guest judge from the audience for each competition.”
