Plans backfire for uninitiated chefs, throwing off some big name competitors.

Gold Medal Plates Toronto is a highly anticipated and hotly contested competition. This year it features a particularly strong field. Seasoned competitors such as Mark McEwen from North 44 and Splendido’s David Lee have mapped out detailed battle plans based on experience while some of the uninitiated chefs are encountering some nasty shocks. The result is a roller coaster ride for the competitors and a fight to the finish.
