On November 12, 2014, Chef John went head-to-head with nine of Toronto’s finest culinary masters at the prestigious culinary event and will go on to compete at the Canadian Culinary Championships in Kelowna on February 6 and 7, 2015.

Wowing the judges with Grandview Farms’ short ribs glazed with tree syrups, Chef John served the dish with crispy fried maple leaves and tissue thin birch – sweet, aromatic and utterly Canadian. The dish was paired with a 2012 Iconoclast Syrah VQA from Creekside Estate Winery.
