David Jorge celebrates his weekend win at the MasterChef Canada finale.

Cloverdale home chef whips up $100,000 win

Surrey contractor David Jorge wins Masterchef Canada.

Surrey concrete contractor David Jorge is $100,000 richer after winning the MasterChef Canada finale on the weekend.

Jorge cooked his way through 15 episodes of challenges and varied ingredients to rise to the Top 2 in the television competition that began with 49 home cooks from across the country.

On Sunday evening, he faced off against Moncton’s Line Pelletier. The two engaged in a three-course culinary battle, trying to wow the trio of judges and their tastebuds.

While Pelletier won the appetizer round, Jorge’s main course of wild boar belly with geoduck clams and his lemon curd parfait dessert pulled him ahead of his competition, earning him the MasterChef title.

Jorge goes home with $100,000, a trophy and the opportunity to fulfill a longtime dream.

“I am honoured to be named Canada’s next MasterChef, as there were so many worthy home cooks in the kitchen this season,” said Jorge.

“It has been my life-long dream to open a restaurant, and now I can make it a reality – all thanks to the support of my family and friends.”
