Hey foodies! Pay attention to this sweepstakes. If you watched “Top Chef: Texas” this season then you know the show filmed the season finale in British Columbia. The finale included the final four chefs gathering ingredients at Granville Island Public Market and preparing a dish in Whistler’s PEAK 2 PEAK gondola . To celebrate, one winner and their guest will live like a “Top Chef” and taste first-hand why this piece of North America is a culinary paradise.

Now in its ninth season, Emmy-award winning Top Chef has been recognized as the No.1 food show on US cable. Top Chef airs in more than 20 countries with each episode repeating an average of 12 times. This is the first time the US version of Top Chef has filmed in Canada, an opportunity that was facilitated by the Canadian Tourism Commission, Tourism British Columbia, Tourism Vancouver, Tourism Whistler and Fairmont Hotels and Resorts.

As you recall, I visited Vancouver last June but it’s been years since I visited Granville Market. I’m sure it’s just as fabulous as ever. During my most recent trip, I found an awesome food truck – Feastro – and indulged on one too many Japadogs.
