The annual release of the Canada's 100 Best Restaurants list last week still has people talking (and complaining), so hosts Emma Waverman and Phil Wilson sit down Dan Clapson, one of the list's judges to explain the how the restaurant ranking system works and the list's founder and editor-in-chief, Jacob Richler weighs as well. Alexandra Gill provides further insight on the hot topic in this Globe and Mail column from last year.

Shifting gears to recap the third episode of Top Chef Canada, Emma and Phil share their thoughts on how things played out, touching on one especially major important point: food waste in Canada. To wrap things up, Dan sat down with eliminated competitor Nathan Guggenheimer in Saskatoon to find out where he went wrong and why Lynn Crawford once decorated his truck with Roughriders memorabilia. True story.
