A 21-year-old Kelowna chef is set to compete on the next season of the Food Network's Top Chef Canada.

Kelowna resident Siobhan Detkavich will put her culinary skills into practice competing against 10 of the best up and coming chefs from across Canada to compete for the title of Canada’s Top Chef.

Detkavich is currently a Demi Chef de Partie at Terrace Restaurant at the Mission Hill Family Estate Winery and says in a Food Network Canada video that she's always the youngest chef at competitions.

"Throughout my career there has been times when people have doubted me, especially coming from an aboriginal background," Detkavich said in the video. "It's a huge deal for someone like me to be on Top Chef Canada not only because I'm representing a younger generation, but I'm also representing a young Indigenous nation."

Detkavich will be a contestant in season nine of the show, which features a different chef each week who then competes in a series of culinary challenges judged by some of the top chefs in the country.

The 21-year-old said that while she's wanted to go out and party with her friends, she's had to put in long hard hours in the kitchen. She's now one of youngest Red Seal certified chefs in the country.

"You cry every day but you know in the end something is going to come from it," she said. "The goal is to rise to the top."

Canada's Top Chef premieres on the Food Network April 19.
