The crowning of Eric Chong as the first-ever Canadian MasterChef paves the way for new home cooks across the country to follow in his foodie footsteps. As announced last month, CTV has ordered a second season of its hit culinary competition series MASTERCHEF CANADA for the 2014/2015 broadcast season, and casting for Season 2 is now open at CTV.ca/MasterChefCanada.

Home cooks from British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Yukon, Nunavut, and Northwest Territories are encouraged to apply by June 8, 2014 for an opportunity to be interviewed in-person by producers when casting in the region from June 29 – July 2. MASTERCHEF CANADA hopefuls are welcome to apply at a later date in a different region if they are unable to meet their region’s deadline.

MASTERCHEF CANADA is looking for passionate and talented home cooks who want to pursue their culinary dreams. 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.

Season 1’s Top 16 finalists Josh Gale (Vancouver), Kaila Klassen (West Kelowna, B.C.), Danielle Cardozo (Cranbrook, B.C.), Dora Cote (Rocky Mountain House, AB), and Mike Green (Winnipeg) are available to speak with media about their audition experience, and what it was like to compete on the biggest culinary stage in the country.
