As you guys know, I’ve been competing in the Gourmet Garden Blog Off. The competition is now over for round one, and judging has taken place. I have just received this in the email:
Thank-you for participating in the Blog Off round of our promotion and for your delicious recipe ideas! We are astounded by the amazing response to the promotion and all the fantastic blogs (you can see these at http://www.gourmetgarden.com/au/contents/view/Blog-Off).
The competition was tight however we have reviewed all the posts today and voted based on both blog and recipe creativity and we are delighted to invite you to progress to the “Cook Off” round of the promotion. Congratulations!!
I am SO excited, dear readers! I am through to the second round where I will be competing at the Good Food and Wine Show in either Sydney or Brisbane (details are not yet confirmed). I am not sure yet what I will be cooking but lets hope I have a choice. I have 45 minutes in which to create a masterpiece. Sourdough calzones do take their time to make (hours), but really are a huge crowd pleaser. You can’t go wrong with muffins and those zucchini cheese ones are pretty nice. Sauces and other condiments do make sensational additives to an otherwise ordinary meal. The brinjal was a pretty awesome pickle too, but is it good enough to be judged on?
What do you think? Id love some feedback from you guys! Help me decide what I should make
