On October 10th, two of Chopped Canada contestants, Paresh Thakkar (Personal Touch Eatery) and Stacie Royds (Personal Chef) competed face-to-face for the Diamond Chef Award, held at the Art Gallery of Hamilton. The winner of the competition was Paresh Thakkar by cooking Mexican chicken with a mole sauce and sweet potato puree. Guests mixed and mingled while visiting the integrative chef stations, bidding on silent auction items, listening to wonderful live music and watching the chefs work their creative magic in the kitchen. They also had the opportunity to explore a few of the exhibits at the AGH. Net proceeds from this event support the vital work the Arthritis Society, providing research, advocacy and solutions to improve the quality of life for Canadians affected by arthritis including family fun days and 4 national summer camps.
