of History

elevating and celebrating Canadian
excellence in food, music and sport


In fall of 2022: We are back - in person!
Chefs are excited to be back competing to be on the podium! You will get the opportunity to taste the best food in your city, mix with iconic Canadian musicians and athletes and make a difference for youth in your community. It will be wonderful to elevate and celebrate Canadian Excellence together once again!

A Little History

2006-2019: 5000 guests gathered annually at events across the country to celebrate Canadian excellence (we were known as Gold Medal Plates 2006-2017). Over 100 chefs compete annually for the chance to be the best in the country and named that year's Canadian Culinary Champion.

In 2020 and 2021 during the pandemic, we pivoted and created unique digital opportunities to entertain Canadians in challenging times and to positively impact Canadian restaurants, musicians and our beneficiaries. Thank you for your ongoing support during these times!

Since our launch, over $17 million has been raised: $15 million for elite Canadian athletes and now $2 million for our chosen food, sport and music beneficiaries!
