UCC established the chef battle event series in 2013. This year, we are embarking on an exciting journey to find new ways to help amplify, support and inform the culinary community.


Our Chef battles take place at restaurants across Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa. These battles challenge soon-to-be-discovered Chefs to create several dishes from secret ingredients in under one-hour and provide audience goers with a real-time experience of life in the kitchen. If you're a chef interested in battling, a taste-maker interested in judging or hosting, we want to hear from you.

Our next Battle - KraftHeinz and UCC Presents Grilled Cheese Battle on June 12, 2017 at BÖEHMER RESTAURANT - 93 Ossington Ave (at Queen St West) Toronto. Purchase Tickets at
