That's a Wrap!

The Canadian Food Championships (CFC), held just around the corner from the Taste of Edmonton Festival, was the first World's qualifying event in Canada. Chefs from around the country competed in six categories: bacon, sandwich, dessert, burger, pasta and seafood for a spot on Team Canada, $2,500 in cash and a $1500 travel voucher to the World Food Championships (WFC).

We’re extremely glad we could supply the competitors with fresh ingredients and hang out with the Canadian Food Championships gang!

After four solid days of heated, head to head competition, six Canadians earned a spot on Team Canada and will attend the WFC in Florida this coming November. Congratulations to Sumit, Sheshona, Arnaud, Doreen, Lindsay and Rusty!

All the leftover food was donated to YESS, Youth Empowerment & Support Services a local Edmonton non-profit that offers support services to youth at risk.
