Co-creator and star of SCHITT’S CREEK, Dan Levy, has teamed up with Boardwalk Pictures (CHEF’S TABLE, CHEER) to bring you the next great American culinary success story.
Dan – along with a team of experts – is setting out to find undiscovered culinary voices from across America by offering them the opportunity to compete for their big break.
Whether you’re the owner of a neighborhood gem making an impact in the community, a sous or executive chef with entrepreneurial dreams, or a food truck or private chef changing the lives of everyone you feed, come join us in a friendly competition that will raise a toast to talented chefs and celebrate the underdog of meals...BRUNCH!
Everybody has a friend, a family member, or a co-worker that is extraordinary at what they do, they just need a leg up so that their talents can be appreciated on a larger scale. Thanks to an almost obsessive love of food, I’ve been lucky enough to come across many of those people in the culinary world – friends working out of cafes or food trucks, revolutionizing the menus at local diners – those special humans who create communities around their cooking, hoping to take their skills to the next level.
I created this show for them, the local culinary heroes of America who deserve a spotlight. Well, that, and who doesn’t want to watch maple syrup being poured slowly over a golden stack of perfectly cooked, creme brûlée inspired French toast? – Dan Levy
