Eden Grinshpan of Top Chef Canada.

“I’ve been playing around with my latkes,” Eden Grinshpan tells me. The chef turned entrepreneur has had a busy year, one that she looks forward to capping off with family, friends and her take on Middle Eastern cuisine. Grinshpan recently opened Dez, a fast-casual restaurant in New York that serves everything from falafel to sabich to shakshuka. “I’m a big fan of making the classics and giving them a bit of a facelift.”

The Toronto native was back home this fall to host the latest season of Top Chef Canada, which is back next spring. “I get to eat food from some of the best chefs in the country, which is amazing,” she says of the gig. A few days after filming wrapped, she designed a dinner menu for DavidsTea’s 10th year anniversary party. Each course was paired with some of the brand’s tea blends, something she likes to incorporate into her own meals. Here, she shares a few staples that will make it into her annual Hanukkah feast.
