I am a lucky girl. My friend Jen, at Piccante Dolce and one of my two partners in crime in my year long challenge to never repeat a recipe for a year, no reEATS gets invited to some pretty cool food events and she has arranged for me to be invited to tag along a couple of times.
Last night we attended the regional finals for the 9th Annual Almost Famous Chef competition at the Calphalon Culinary Centre. 8 students from four participating culinary schools across the country were given two hours to create a unique signature dish. The judges were a collection of chefs, food journalist and a blogger, David Ort from Food with Legs, who won his spot on the judges table.
We had barely got in the door when
ean-François Daigle and he will be going to Napa Valley to compete in the big competition in the spring!
