Famous Fridays, Connie DeSousa

March 2, 2012

As a new season of Top Chef Canada premiers on March 12th, I think it only fitting to talk about one of our Canadian gems!

Connie DeSousa

During last season I was an avid watcher of the show and when work took me away I ended up missing the last two episodes.

I didn’t mind; right from the start I knew Connie was the clear winner. So it was to my utter shock several months ago when I found out she was robbed and given second place.

Recently while dining at Charcut I was pleased to meet my food angel who took the time to step out of the kitchen to see how everyone was enjoying their meal.

Not only is she as amazingly talented as she is beautiful, she also has such a great aura of calm and sweetness; not at all how I imagined a cut throat Top Chef contestant to be.

I recently ran into Connie again at a charity event supporting the arts where she donated her name, talent and time.

I asked her about her time on the show, of which she can’t say much as she’s signed a 3 year confidentiality agreement.

But she did say she thinks she’ll be able to spot the winner of the up coming season based on the first episode!

Ohhhh I can’t wait for the next few years to pass so I can get the dirt on what being on Top Chef was really like!

You’re a fabulous person Connie DeSousa, don’t change a thing!
