Season three premieres on CBC
By Jerrison Oracion, Columnist
Recipe to Riches is back and it’s bigger than ever before. The show’s third season aired its first episode on February 26 on its new network, CBC. The show began its next search for a recipe that is worth $250,000 and will be sold as a President’s Choice product in Loblaw supermarkets.
This season is hosted by Carlo Rota from CBC’s Little Mosque on the Prairie and the judges this time are food writer Gail Simmons, Vikram Vij from Vij’s Restaurant in Vancouver, and Arlene Dickinson from Dragon’s Den.
In the season premiere, the show focussed on everyone’s favourite food item: desserts. In the episode, viewers are introduced to Erica Pauze with her maple-bacon butter tarts, Port Coquitlam’s Jesse Meredith with his milk chocolate raspberry cheesecake bites, as well as Brad Reinsch with his coco nut nut bars. Pauze, Meredith, and Reinsch are all trying to win for the competition with their recipe.
In the end, Meredith’s milk chocolate raspberry cheesecake bites—with their great design that promises a creamy and rich taste—won the $25,000 episode prize, and are now available at Superstore and President’s Choice supermarkets. He will go on to compete for the $250,000 grand prize.
