Thank You for Taking the Master Chef Challenge at Home!
Thank you to all of you who rose to this year’s recipe contest! We received so many incredible submissions and now we’re doing the tremendously difficult task of selecting our Top 10! We’ll be contacting those who move onto the next round as well as announcing them here very soon, so keep your eyes on this space!
Take the 30-Minute Master Chef Challenge at Home for a Chance to Win $10,000!
Have you mastered the art of getting dinner on the table quickly? If throwing meals together in a pinch is your specialty, this is your chance to step into the spotlight. The Little Potato Company and MasterChef Canada Judge Michael Bonacini are proud to partner for another year to bring you a new and exciting recipe contest.
This year’s challenge? Create an original, 30-minute recipe starring small potatoes for a chance to win $10,000—and a trophy to showcase your triumph!
Little potatoes are the perfect go-to ingredient for 30-minute recipes because you don’t need to peel or wash them, they’re consistently sized, and cook to the same doneness—saving you time in the kitchen.
Your time starts…NOW!
How to Enter
Here’s what you need to know before you enter the contest:
- Create an original recipe that cooks in 30 minutes (not including preparation time) and uses small potatoes as the starring ingredient.
- Submit two photos: one of your completed dish on its own, and one of you with your completed dish.
- Include in your submission the recipe name and an explanation (in under 500 words) of why you love to cook.
Once you’re ready to enter, head over to CTV.ca/LittlePotatoCo. The entry period is open until November 3, 2019 at 11:59:59 PM EST.
If we shortlist your dish as a Top 10 finalist, you may step forward into the next round! The Top 10 finalists will be asked to submit a short video for a chance to proceed to the Top 2. Top 10 finalists will be contacted in early November.
The Top 2 finalists will compete in a head-to-head cook-off on the Marilyn Denis Show in December 2019! MasterChef Canada Judge Michael Bonacini will be there to help judge the Top 2 recipes.
Recipe Tips and Inspiration from Michael Bonacini
The Little Potato Company grows only Creamer potatoes—it’s all we have done since 1996! We love Little potatoes and we hope your family and friends will love them too! They’re an easy addition to any dish because you can roll them straight out of the bag and into the oven. No washing, peeling, or even slicing required!
Master Chefs like Michael Bonacini are all too familiar with having to prepare meals in a snap, and share smart advice for everyone cooking at home in a hurry.
Chef Bonacini once again has created five new Little Potato recipes to help inspire you in the kitchen when creating your own 30-minute dish! He’s developed cooking tips, too!
