Canadians looking to follow in the culinary footsteps of Eric Chong, the first-ever Canadian MasterChef, can do so in person at the MASTERCHEF CANADA Season 2 Open Casting Call in Toronto at 7 a.m. ET on July 12 and 13, 2014, at the InterContinental Toronto Centre Hotel. Casting for Season 2 is also open online at CTV.ca/MasterChefCanada until Sunday, July 13.

Home cooks are asked to arrive at 7 a.m. on either Saturday, July 12 or Sunday, July 13 to the MASTERCHEF CANADA Open Casting Call at the InterContinental Toronto Centre Hotel, 225 Front St. W. MASTERCHEF CANADA hopefuls are asked to bring one prepared dish, which they will be given three minutes to plate before presenting to professional tasters. There will not be any kitchen facilities or supplies available. All dishes will be tasted at room temperature and applicants must be able to carry everything they need into the audition room. Prospective competitors will be judged on how their dishes taste, plating, creativity, skill, and food knowledge. Home cooks are encouraged to visit CTV.ca/MasterChefCanada to complete the online application in advance of their in-person audition, and to read the FAQs carefully.

**Media Note** A limited number of spots are open to gastronomically-inclined members of the media to experience the MASTERCHEF CANADA audition process first-hand. Journalists may register to experience the audition process for themselves, or accompany a nominated friend or family member. Those interested can contact Tanya Koivusalo for more details.

MASTERCHEF CANADA is looking for passionate and talented home cooks who want to pursue their culinary dreams, and represent the country’s diverse culinary landscape. All applicants must be amateurs, and cannot have worked professionally in a culinary environment as a cook, chef, or in food preparation. Full details are available at CTV.ca/MasterChefCanada.
