Chopped Canada is a culinary competition show that premiered on Food Network in 2014. The show is an adaptation of the popular American show, Chopped, and is hosted by Dean McDermott, with Brad Smith and Lynn Crawford serving as recurring judges alongside a rotating panel of guest judges.

The format of the show involves four competing chefs who must create a three-course meal using four mystery ingredients in each course. At the beginning of each round, the chefs are presented with a basket of ingredients, which must be used in their dishes. The chefs are given a limited amount of time to prep and cook their dishes and are judged on their creativity, presentation, and taste.

The show is divided into three rounds - appetizer, entree, and dessert. After each round, one chef is eliminated based on the judges' critique of their dishes. The remaining chefs move on to the next round until one chef is declared the winner.

Apart from the regular episodes, the show also features special episodes such as "Chopped Canada Teen Challenge" and "Chopped Canada Champions" where previous winners of the show compete against each other.

Dean McDermott, the host of the show, is an experienced actor and chef who has appeared in several TV shows and movies. He brings a fun and lively energy to the show and keeps the competition light-hearted with his humorous commentary and interaction with the contestants.

Brad Smith, a former CFL player and television personality, serves as one of the recurring judges. He adds an athlete's perspective to the show and has a keen eye for detail and technique when it comes to judging the contestants' dishes.

Lynn Crawford, a celebrated Canadian chef, is the other recurring judge on the show. Her years of experience in the culinary industry bring a level of expertise to the judging panel, and she is known for her no-nonsense approach to critiquing the contestants' dishes.

Overall, Chopped Canada is an exciting and engaging culinary competition show that showcases the creativity and skills of Canada's top chefs. The show has garnered a loyal audience over the years and continues to be a favorite among food lovers and aspiring chefs in Canada.
