About The Gentlemen’s Expo:
The Gentlemen’s Expo is an annual event that entertains and educates men and women in topics related to men’s lifestyle through brand experience areas and interesting products while encouraging men to #BeBetter. It is the re-invention of the consumer show, putting experience, content and entertainment at the forefront.
This year, The Gentlemen’s Expo 2016 is happening on November 10 to 12 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, South Building (222 Bremner Blvd). For more information, please visit http://www.gentlemensexpo.com
Below is a growing list of some of the amazing attractions you can find at The Gentlemen’s Expo this year:
Underground Chef Co. (UCC) Battle – O.G Addition:
Get ready to experience the biggest, ‘bad-est’ and most epic food battle that Toronto has ever seen! The team over at Underground Chef Co. have been hard at work organizing an insane line-up of Chefs that hail from around the GTA to create a special edition Chef Battle, exclusively on The Gentlemen’s Expo Cooking Stage for the very first time.
The Chefs battling at this year’s event include veteran Chef Ted Reader (Ted’s World Famous BBQ) and the incredibly talented Chef Jeff Dueck (2ndFloor Events). The Chef Battle will be hosted by both Joe Friday (Founder of UCC) and comedian, Mike Ward. There will also be an incredible panel of judges who will score each Chef. These judges have yet to be announced.
For anyone who has never witnessed a UCC Chef Battle live before: Underground Chef Co., challenges Chefs to create several dishes from secret ingredients in under one-hour and provide audience goers with a real-time experience of life in the kitchen. It’s hot, loud, and it’s messy but this on-stage event will leave you in shock and awe once you see what these Chef’s come up with.

The Openly discussion is another first for The Gentlemen’s Expo and it’s happening on their main stage. The Openly Discussion will feature some of the biggest names and brightest minds in the Canadian culinary world all sitting together to talk about life in the kitchen, how they started out in the business and even about their likes and dislikes about today’s food and drink scene. Be prepared to laugh and learn from these heavy-hitting Chefs because there will be a ton of knowledge and experience sharing the stage at one time.
Currently scheduled to participate in the Openly discussion is Whiskey Chef Matt Jones, Chef Ted Reader, Chef Jeff Dueck, Krista Faist (Editor of Foosdism TO), Kevin Brauch (The Thirsty Traveller), Chef Mike Hunter, Chef Rob Rainford and some surprise appearances from some other well known culinary experts in Toronto’s food scene.
