S. Pellegrino Almost Famous Chef Competition & Giveaway

4 Feb

Good morning everyone!

As I announced last week, I will be teaming up with the S. Pellegrino Almost Famous Chef Competition to cover this years competition.

If you have never heard of the competition, it brings together aspiring chefs from all over North America, to compete for the chance to be named number one. Each student is nominated by his or her culinary school to compete in the regional competition being held in Toronto, and then the winner of the regional portion, will move on to the finals in Napa California.

This is really the opportunity of a lifetime for one of these culinarians!

We are lucky to have two students representing Vancouver:

Kevan Hafichuk in his first year at Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts

and

Matt Cusano in his final year at the International Culinary School at the Art Institute of Vancouver

I will be hosting a Q + A with Kevan in next week or so, please check back for that!

Now for the really fun part, San Pellegrino Almost Famous Chef Competition has come out with a wonderful E-Book filled with recipes from this and previous, competitions. Get the E-Book for free here! All the recipes look great, I was definitely eyeing up some of those drinks too! You know me.

And best of all, they have given me the opportunity to do a giveaway for Dinner for Two at Cardero’s in Coal Harbour ($125 value)!

Cardero’s is an amazing restaurant in the most beautiful location, I know you all would love it. In case you don’t win, you should really try it out anyways!! Check it out here.

To enter:

Leave a comment telling me which recipe you would love to try from the E-Book! There are soo many good ones to choose from, just shout it out and you’re entered to win.
