Best Chef Toronto

Who's the Best Chef in Toronto?

Who's the best chef currently working in Toronto? Is it the soon to be departed Susur? The locavore obsessed Jamie Kennedy? How about Rocco Agostino who's been winning praise for both the Silver Spoon and the newly minted Pizzeria Libretto?

If it's any of the above, we won't know it by the soon to be in production seven-part television series and culinary competition Gold Medal Plates: The Quest for Canada's Best Chef which will air on Travel + Escape in the Spring of 2009.

Slated to represent Toronto in the national competition are ten chefs including:

J.P. Challet - The Fifth
Lino Collevecchio - Via Allegro
Ryan Gustafson - Epic, The Fairmont Royal York
Jonathan Gushue - Langdon Hall Country House
John Kwan - Lai Toh Heen
David Lee - Splendido
Patrick Lin - Senses Restaurant
Lorenzo Loseto - George
Mark McEwan - North 44
Scot Woods - Lucien

Take our poll below to vote on who you think is the best chef in the city. If you don't like any of these candidates, add your pick in the comments below.
