The exciting prime-time documentary series is the Next Great Chef was filmed in Victoria, with several segments filmed at Camosun College’s Helmut Huber Culinary Arts Centre.

Erik Andersen, Chair of the Culinary Arts Department and a chef with over 30 years experience cites the example of Camosun College Culinary Arts graduate Daniel Craig, who won gold at the prestigious Jeunes Commis Rotisseurs world cooking competition this fall in Adelaide, Australia. “These are the young greats of the cooking world,” says Andersen, “but they are real people with real stories, which the show captures very well.”
