Eric Chong, 21, has been crowned the inaugural winner of MasterChef Canada in last night's dramatic finale and saved from a life in chemical engineering. Netting $100,000 for his innovative blend of East meets West cuisine, Chong's win may finally convince his parents that can make it as a chef. The intense cook off against Marida Mohammed, 41, a stay-at-home mother and master Caribbean chef, went right down to the wire, but it was Chong's extraordinary Asian Banana Split with green tea ice cream that gave him the advantage. With his earnings, Chong plans to open a modern dim sum restaurant in the city. Susur Lee better watch his back. Watch the full episode here.
