Toronto to host huge chip and dip battle

Potato chips fans rejoice. Toronto is set to host its first (as far as I can tell) chips & dip battle, and if the participating restaurants are any indication, some seriously delicious junk food is in store. Organized by Ivy Knight, the competition will go down March 2 at the Drake Hotel.

Despite the lowbrow nature of the food, a serious battle is brewing, one that will be judged by the PEI Potato Board and cast members from Just Passing Through. The winning chef will be sent to the country's smallest province to compete in the Garland International Chefs Challenge (which carries with it a $10,000 grand prize).

Freshly made potato chips are a rare treat, and these ones promise to be a cut above. The list of participating restaurants is below. Will Hopgood's have an inside track with its Maritimes-themed menu? I guess we'll find out.
