Reem Ahmed, a 26 year old biomedical engineer from Egypt currently residing in Canada is the first hijabi to contest on Masterchef Canada. She joins other Muslim trail blazers like Nadiya Hussain in the UK, an hijabi who won the Great British Bake Off in 2015 and Saliha Mahmood-Ahmed who won the Masterchef UK award in 2017.

According to CTV's website, Reem Ahmed's audition dish for the Masterchef Canada competition was:  eggplant Stuffed with Basmati Rice, Baba Ghanoush, and Charcoal Beef. Her food dream is: to open an Egyptian restaurant called The Pyramid.

Reem Ahmed announced her participation in Masterchef Canada with the following message on her Instagram account:


"I can finally announce that I'm among the top 21 cooks participating in one of the biggest culinary shows in the world, and the first muslim,#hijabi women on the show #masterchefcanada #masterchefca, April 3rd !๐Ÿ˜❤ can't wait!

Judging from the droolworthy images of her food creations on her instagram account, Reem Ahmed obviously puts in a lot of practice and effort to perfect her cooking craft. This picture below of the stuffed vegetables and chicken dish she shared on her Instagram account had us salivating, for this dish, we would readily give her a 10 over 10 for presentation and a 10 over 10 for authenticity.




The first episode of this new season of Masterchef Canada starts on April 3rd, 2018, 9 p.m. ET. 

We wish Reem Ahmed and all the contestants much success.
