Tonight at 10pm is a moment I’ve been waiting for a few weeks now. The return of Top Chef Canada. Truthfully I wasn’t all that excited, as I wasn’t the biggest fan of the first season, that was until I found out Ottawa had a couple of horses in this season’s race. In particular, Chef Jonathan Korecki, one of the chef’s I profiled for the Celebrity Chefs of Canada event that is rapidly coming up on March 25.

I have a gut feeling that Chef Korecki is going to go all the way. He’s a ninja. A tiger. A culinary flying monkey. Here is just some little known facts about Chef Korecki.

When Alexander Bell invented the telephone he had 3 missed calls from Chef Korecki.
Jonathan Korecki won American Idol last season using only sign language.
There is a grizzly bear rug at Sidedoor Kitchen. The bear isn’t dead, just afraid to move.
Chef Korecki  won the World Series of Poker using Pokemon cards.

He’s also the only chef ever to unscramble an egg.

Good luck to Chef Korecki and to Chef Curtis Luk from Courtyard Restaurant – here is hoping it’s a Ottawa show down for the finale!!

For anyone interested, there are still some tickets left to the March 25 Celeb Chef event – come on out and meet some amazing chefs and, more importantly, try their food! Click here for details.
