Deconstructed Yak Poutine: Taste of Edmonton Blackbox ChallengeAugust 01, 2013
As I had mentioned in an earlier Manicure Monday post, I recently participated in a cooking contest at this year's Taste of Edmonton festival. A few months back, the organizers for Taste of Edmonton sent out a message about their Black Box Challenge, similar to 'Chopped' on the Food Network where you're given a box of 5-6 ingredients, and your challenge is to make a dish to showcase all the ingredients together. Fun, right? Well, not so much when you're a food blogger like me who reviews restaurants and hardly cooks at home!

So all I have left to say is THANK YOU to everyone that came out to support my team on the day of the competition. I was honestly shocked by the number of people that came to the event just to cheer our team on, and I will never forget the day. Your support means the world to me (and my team!) and I appreciate each and every one of you that took time out of your day to stop by the event. Thanks to the team at Taste of Edmonton for putting together and hosting the competition, and to all the sponsors that made the event possible. If given the opportunity.. you'll see me again next year with Lesley and Addie fighting for the title!
