Canada’s favourite culinary competition Top Chef Canada Season X has now reached roughly the halfway point, with just seven cheftestants remaining to compete for the coveted TCC crown.
Despite having no formal culinary training, Toronto-based chef Monika Wahba has made a name for herself by creating full-bodied Egyption dishes that draw inspiration from her cultural roots and upbringing.
Although she’s had a few middle-of-the-pack performances in the competition so far, chef Wahba showed viewers that she has what it takes to go the distance with a top-performing bison ribs and salad duo dish in Episode 4.
We recently caught up with the talented Toronto-based chef to chat about her favourite places to eat and drink in her current home base.
Top Chef Canada Season X airs Monday nights at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Food Network Canada.
