Last week was a busy one as co-hosts Emma Waverman and Phil Wilson attended two major culinary events (Toronto's Terroir Symposium and Cochon555 in Banff, respectively). Waverman dives into what makes Terroir unique, and Wilson talks about the surprising result of Cochon's first Canadian heritage pork competition. At the James Beard Media Awards in New York City last Friday night, Canadian filmmaker Kevin Kossowan was up for a prestigious award. His fellow nominee, Bon Appetit magazine's editor Adam Rapoport chats with Dan Clapson during the ceremony about what the Beards can mean for a first-time nominee like Kossowan.
After the summaries of the glitzy events, Emma and Phil give us a full and candid rundown of Top Chef Canada episode four: Restaurant Wars. A few unexpected twists and turns in this episode leave us asking, "Why?" a few times too.
