Viewers watched with anticipation to see who the nation voted for. All contestants had superb recipes that have been made into President's Choice products. $25,000 and their dishes made into PC products is BIG! They are all winners in my books!
Just an aside:
I am really happy to have been able to participate in the Recipe to Riches excitement as an official Recipe to Riches food blogger. It's been a fun ride!
I was also thrilled to hang out with Melaney (savoury bannock pie). I can honestly say that she is one of the most amazing people I've ever met! She radiates with joy and love. How you see her on TV is how she is in person. 100% gold.
We had Dim Sum together in Toronto and Dim Sum will never be the same! :)
Even "Gwampy" and Little One got to hang out with Melaney!
Little One was generous enough to share her delicious cake with her cousins.
My two crushes were there too. Yes, I mean Galen Weston and Jesse Palmer!
Oh! Guess who Melissa and I spotted in the crowd? Brad (maple pouding au chomeur) was at the taping too!
What a fabulous concept for a TV show. Really, really looking forward to season two and really, really looking forward to hitting the supermarket so I can get more kulfi, peach bliss, pulled pork, chicken grenades, bannock pie, and luscious lemon pudding!
