Medium Rare on MasterChef Canada

We usually don’t spend a lot of time watching amateur cooking shows on TV, but we are keeping an eye on the new season of MasterChef Canada

Why? Contestant Kenya Hushagen is an Albertan and also cousin to our own Chef Cam D. We’re always happy to support a home girl, which is why she’s rocking a special-edition MRCA apron.

Although Kenya’s current day job is as a film and TV wardrobe stylist, we think she’s wearing her Medium Rare gear like a pro. That may be because she’s had some professional experience serving for Ottolenghi and got to see how that busy kitchen worked close up.

Season 2 of MasterChef Canada, featuring judges Michael Bonacini, Alvin Leung, and Claudio Aprile kicks off Sunday, Feb. 8 at 7 p.m. ET/PT on CTV.

In addition to Kenya, contestants range from a retired pro-football player and a paramedic to a rural veterinarian, recording artist, bus driver and a Canadian military vet.
