I received this wonderful offer from Erin Lau of the Food Network Canada Television channel, and had to share this once in a lifetime opportunity! For all of you wanna be television stars out there, here is your chance to fulfill your dream, and win some money in the process! So register soon for your chance to win.
Below is an excerpt of the e mail I received:
"My name is Erin Lau and I am the Outreach Coordinator for the national food show Recipe to Riches. It's a new Canadian food series that will air on Food Network Canada and Global Television this fall. I'm writing because I'm wondering if you and the readers of Anna's Table would be interested in participating in our show--your chocolate cherry cake looked so divine! We will be in Montreal for an open casting call on Saturday, February 19 at the Hyatt Regency.
Below is a little bit more information about our show. I highly encourage you to pre-register.
Recipe to Riches is looking for Canadians with great recipes and stories. The show will be hosted by Ottawa native, Jesse Palmer, former star of The Bachelor and football analyst for ESPN/ABC in the U.S. and TSN in Canada. Open casting calls will take place in four cities across Canada, and Canadians have the option of entering their recipe in one of seven categories: appetizers, sweet and savoury snacks, cakes, sweet pies, savoury pies, entrees, and frozen treats.
The recipes will be judged on presentation, taste, originality and the story behind the dish.
Each category will have a winner who will receive a $25,000 cash prize and the chance to have their recipe developed into a President’s Choice® branded product available in select Loblaw grocery stores across the country. The finalists of the seven categories will then have the chance at the grand prize of $250,000. This is the largest cash prize in Canadian reality television history!
Our team is looking for amazing Montreal dishes to add to our search for Canada's best recipe. We will be at the Hyatt Regency on Saturday, February 19. To register for your audition, please visit www.recipetoriches.ca.
