The Royal will be back on the road for its third annual Egg Farmers of Ontario Road to The Royal Chef Challenge, rekindling their historic connection with regional fairs and festivals across Ontario. Six events across Ontario will serve as venues to qualify a local restaurant chef to participate in the semi- final rounds to be held at The Royal on November 5th & 6th. The winning chef from each semi-final round will move onto the Grand Finale on Saturday, November 12th, in which they will face off against each other and the winning chef from the Toronto Chef Challenge.
