Kitchener’s Terry Salmond edged out by Ottawa chef in Top Chef Canada season finale

Waterloo Region Record

KITCHENER — Terry Salmond, executive chef at downtown Kitchener's Walper Terrace Hotel, was nearly crowned the top chef in Canada by judges during the season 4 finale of the Food Network's Top Chef Canada reality show Monday night.

Despite cooking fish and chips with quail egg, lemon ricotta tortellini, venison with black walnuts and a dessert he told the judges was "burnt onion crunch," Salmond's creations lost to the works of René Rodriguez, owner and chef of Ottawa's Navarra restaurant.

The judges praised all four of Terry's creations Monday night, but said they liked Rodriguez's main dish better.

Along with the recognition of beating 13 other master chefs from across Canada, Rodriguez won $100,000 in prize money.
