Barrie’s Largest Foodie Night ‘Top Cheflicious’ Returns

Local Chef's battle for the crown of Top Chef Barrie

It’s exclusive, it’s delicious, it’s referred to as Barrie’s food event of the year and it’s approaching quickly. Top Cheflicious is a chance for those self-titled foodies, the everyday Joes and the who’s who of Barrie to critique local dishes from the area’s best chefs.

“This is the ultimate foodie event because it’s one night and you get to taste 11 different restaurants … you can kind of see what they have to offer and you know the chefs are coming with their A1 signature dish because they can be competitive,” Cheflicious organizer Randy Feltis explains. This means it’s not only the perfect opportunity to enjoy dishes from your favorite chefs. It’s also a great way to learn about new restaurants and try food from restaurants that you haven’t had a chance to visit.

After trying the dishes, you will vote for your favourite chef and the winner will be crowned Top Chef of Barrie.

2023 also marks the first time that Peggy Hill will be sponsoring the event. Peggy shares, “I am very excited. This is the first year I’m involved with it and, of course, it will be the best one yet. It’s going to be great. It’s great for local businesses and … it’s pretty amazing to have something like that to go to.”

“It’s all about local. We’re here supporting local restaurants.”
