TORONTO — CBC is cooking up some changes on a hit culinary competition that’s new to the network.

Carlo Rota, known for his appearances on shows such as Little Mosque on the Prairie and The Great Canadian Food Show, will join Recipe to Riches as its host.

The reality show invites amateur Canadian home cooks to share their original personal recipes with the country and compete for a weekly $25,000 prize, a chance at the series grand prize of $250,000, and the opportunity to have their dish reproduced for sale as a President’s Choice brand product.

Recipe to Riches originally aired on Food Network Canada, but enters its third season on CBC, with six episodes set to be shown next winter.

New host Rota, whose father is internationally renowned chef Dante Rota, originally followed in his father’s footsteps before pursuing his longtime passion for acting.

As host of The Great Canadian Food Show, he earned a nomination for the prestigious James Beard Award for excellence in culinary journalism.

Rota replaces Jesse Palmer as the show’s host.
