The museum welcomed CTV’s MasterChef Canada to film an episode in the galleries late last year. It aired this week, and we’re pleased to share it with you here: CTV’s MasterChef Canada “Gifts From The Earth”
The episode aired May 27 at 9 pm, and featured the final four home cooks travelling to the museum for a team challenge inspired by the nation’s roots. Working in teams of two, CTV states that the home cooks were tasked with creating a three-course meal that each highlighted The Three Sisters of Indigenous agriculture.
A table of guest Indigenous Chefs specializing in First Nations cuisine joined the judges in tasting. The guest Chefs included Chef Johl Whiteduck Ringuette, Chef David Wolfman, Chef Rich Francis, Chef Christa Bruneau-Guenther, and Chef Mandie Sellar.
The museum was so pleased to have the opportunity to welcome the MasterChef Canada cast and crew.
“We’re always looking for new and different ways to tell the story of our museum and its world-class collection. Working with MasterChef Canada is a truly unique way to share with audiences across Canada – and beyond,” said Carolyn Hyslop, Executive Director, adding that the filming took place in one day, and museum staff and volunteers marvelled at how quickly and professionally it appeared to come together.
“Needless to say, we were in suspense waiting to see the episode, and it didn’t disappoint! It was so much fun to see the museum featured in this way, and to share it with MasterChef cast, crew and viewers.”
