In Quebec, the Kitchen Brigades workshops end each year with an inter-school competition. After the ⅛, ¼ and ½ finals, the best regional brigades in the province go head-to-head in the spring grand finale hosted by Ricardo Larrivée. The jury, made up of top chefs and members of the industry, assesses the creations of the brigades and crowns the winning school while providing constructive feedback to all participants.
In 2019, the provincial final took place at the ITHQ, and it was the Delta de Matagami school, in the Nord-du-Québec region, that took home the honors!

The Kitchen Brigades Family Competition
In 2020, the program was interrupted by the closure of schools linked to the Covid-19 pandemic. The competitions therefore did not take place. La Tablée des Chefs has been creative by setting up a special edition: the Kitchen Brigades Family Competition. This great contest ended with a virtual final live on Facebook, hosted by Marina Bastarache. Four families clashed there, under the gaze and analysis of chefs Ricardo and Jonathan Lapierre-Réhayem.
