Keith Pears is the next Canada's Bocuse d'Or new candidate
On April today on the Garland Stage at @restaurantscanada's show, Chef @keith_pears won the leading role and the reigns of @bocusedorcanada. Keith went head-to-head against three other contenders in a 2.5-hour high-energy battle, where he had to reinvent Châteaubriand using Montpak veal from Quebec.
His first mandate will be to work to form his team which will include a coach and a commis. The team will have just over a year to work together to win their golden tickets to the Olympics of Gastronomy in Lyon, at the Americas.
Born and raised in Vancouver, Keith Pears was born into a family of chefs and destined to become immersed in the culinary field. In 2017 Keith challenged himself both personally and professionally with a move to Toronto where he was appointed as Executive Chef at the Delta Hotels by Marriott. Keith has competed in a number of culinary contests including Best of the West, City TV's Master Chef (B.C.) and won the title of Chef of the Year, Garland Canada International Shellfish Chef Challenge, Chopped Canada and most recently Canada's Great Kitchen party (Toronto).
