Chocolate Challenge is Back At Gourmet Warehouse

20 Aug


Are you a culinary student, home cook or just plain chocolate lover? Do you have a delicious original chocolate recipe?  If so, the Gourmet Warehouse wants to hear from you.  You have the opportunity to enter one of two categories: student or home cook in which you could win up to $1,000 in prizes in each category.

Judging your chocolate decadence will be Rob Feenie, Food Concept Architect for Cactus Restaurants, Thomas Haas, Pastry Chef and Chocolatier and owner of Thomas Haas Chocolates and Greg Hook, Cacao Barry Brand Ambassador and owner of Chocolate Arts.

Deadline for entries has been extended to September 25, 2013. The Grand Finale Event will be held on October 10, 2013 from 6:30 – 9:30 p.m. at Gourmet Warehouse, 1340 East Hastings Street. The events of the evening will be hosted by the lovely Jill Krop. Tickets for this event are $50.  Note the event is a fundraiser for one of my favourite programs, The Strathcona Backpack Program.  Having attended last year’s Chocolate Challenge, this a great event with lots of delectable treats on hand plus you get to rub elbows and chat with local foodie celebrities.  What’s not to like? 

If you have an original recipe worth submitting, visit Gourmet Warehouse’s website for the submission form and complete details.
