2006 Canadian Culinary Championships don't mean a thing


I just saw the press release naming Makoto Ono of Gluttons Restaurant in Winnipeg as the "Best Chef in Canada." Not to take anything away from him, but the competition was between seven 'regional' finalists.

All fine and dandy until you look at what they consider regions; Halifax, Ottawa, Toronto, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary, and Vancouver.

Do you notice someplace missing?

  1. It's a best of the rest competition ;-)

    1. Were I you, I would send a strongly worded letter. Yes, I would.
      How dare a finalist (a finalist!) not come from, as you intimate, Quebec City. It was Quebec City that's missing, right?

      1. Howdy!

        Or Montreal, or Alymer, Gatineau, Sherbrooke, Rimouski. Any city in Quebec would have been acceptable.

        1. People have been saying that Victoria has the best food scene in Canada. Surprising Vancouver got better-rated than Victoria.
          And, of course, it's funny that they should have both Edmonton and Calgary, both Ottawa and Toronto, but neither Quebec City nor Montreal.

          1. It's retarded that there wasn't anyone from Montreal. We have such great chefs here.
