What

on earth is happening

Welcome to Chef To Be, Calgary’s most thrilling blackbox cooking competition where the head chefs of six well known Calgary restaurants team up with their ambitious pupils to compete and raise money for a $5,000 SAIT Culinary Scholarship.

CALGARY’S FOOD SCENE IS THRIVING AND WE’RE HELPING ONE SPECIAL STUDENT GET AHEAD ON THEIR PATH THROUGH CULINARY SCHOOL.

Made for this city by people from this city, we’re bringing high quality local food prepared by professionals to you in a manner like none before.

10 INGREDIENTS. 6 TEAMS. 4 HOURS… 300 TASTING MEALS TO SERVE.

The blackbox competition means that students and their associated head chefs will get 10 specifically chosen ingredients to prepare for an audience of 130 with no prior preparation.

Each competing Chef is responsible for creating their brigade of Four Members. The brigade must consist of The Competing Chef, (1) SAIT Alumni, (1) current SAIT PCK or ACKP student and a fourth member of the Chef’s choice. The Chef is responsible for putting their teams together.

There are other fundraisers, other cooking competitions and the Food Network, but Calgary’s Chef To Be competition is unique in its delivery and message. We want more for you and more for our food industry. With only four hours to cook, the head chefs battle for respect, while SAIT Culinary students compete for the glory of being named Calgary’s ultimate Chef To Be.

PREPARE YOURSELF FOR A COOKING COMPETITION LIKE NO OTHER BEFORE IT. GET INVOLVED IN CALGARY’S GROWING FOOD SCENE AND SEE THE MAGIC AT WORK BEFORE THE TICKETS ARE SOLD OUT.
