Glo McNeill took home $250,000 and Food Network Canada capped off what has become its sixth highest-rated series this fall.

Produced by Toronto-based Temple Street Productions, the reality series challenged contestants in an elimination format to compete for the chance to have their home recipe turned into a permanent President’s Choice product.

The series was highlighted by an innovative format in which each week’s winning recipe was turned into a President’s Choice product and released in stores the day following each episode.

In its premiere week Recipe to Riches drew 574,700 viewers (2+) and 291,100 viewers (aged 25 to 54) across multiple airings. Since the premiere, viewing levels increased to an average of 668,300 viewers (2+) per episode and 338,900 viewers for 25- to 54-year-olds across multiple airings.

Prior to Wednesday’s 9 p.m. broadcast, the series was Food Network Canada’s 6th ranked show for 25- to 54-year-olds this fall season-to-date.
