Are you chef worthy?

I get a few emails here and there about reality tv shows and competitions, and I usually send them out directly to the people that I think could apply... But today, I am putting it out there for all of you to read and consider!

Are you an extraordinary home chef? Do you watch Top Chef and think that you could be solid competition? This call for entries is aimed towards the 'every day person' who rocks in the kitchen!!! I know a few, eh Ryan???

You can email Aimee at to get more details.

Go for it! What have you got to lose?


Putting Culinary Rivalry to the Ultimate Test!

Chef Worthy is a competitive new docudrama that puts amateur cooking rivals to the ultimate test; the chance to prove their salt in a top restaurant kitchen. By day these amateur chefs are bankers, teachers, lawyers, government workers and homemakers; but at night they're locked into a culinary rivalry, out to prove themselves the best cook in their social circle. In each episode two cocky cooks go head to head under the watchful eye of a Master Chef who will pull no punches in telling them how things are really done. When given the opportunity to perform in a top kitchen, which one will prove their worth and be crowned Chef Worthy!?

from hockey sticks to spatulas...

this weekend, senators hockey defenceman chris phillips and his lovely wife, erin, traded hockey sticks for spatulas as we played host to a special private dinner with 10 lucky guests in the ue kitchen. first a bit of mixing and mingling with the group and then it was time to get down to business and whip up a fabulous tuscan-inspired dinner led by resident chef candice butler. erin was soooo impressed that her husband actually managed to whip up dessert on his own! chris, we're glad to see you managed to score some points off the ice!

thanks everyone for a great night!

barista challenge!

It seems like a lot of people love coffee!! We have had so many inquiries about the Bridgehead Barista challenge that we could have filled this class three times... stay tuned for the upcoming calendar, we will have a few more.

12 lucky people got the chance to smell, taste, touch, feel, observe, replicate, critique and chat about coffee. By the end of the night, they could do perfect espressos and lattes AND do beautiful latte art.

Our tiny coffee maker looked so wimpy next to Bridgehead's monster machine, at least it has only brewed Bridgehead coffee in its life so far!
