Spring recipe competition as part of Feast of Canterbury

September 1, 2011

This is THE food festival I look forward to most each year – restaurants and cafes offer really tempting deals, food producers open up their gates to show us their magic, and everyone gets to expand their culinary horizons. I’m super gutted I can’t go to the Hats Off Gala Dinner (friends’ birthdays come first!) but have my eye on Mercato’s $15 lunch (have you seen the gorgeous things they produce?!), and the Chef vs Critic dinner that features Nik from Med Foods. Then of course if the Reflection of Canterbury dinner wasn’t sold out, I’d be eyeing that up too. Fortunately for my fast-diminishing bank account, I can’t go to half of the things I want to >.<

As part of the festival I’m running a spring recipe competition open to all Cantabrians. Entries open today and finish on the 20th, so if you’re keen, get scribbling! The prizes are sitting in our spare room, quietly driving me slightly insane… (with envy, of course)

Thanks to the following for supplying prizes:

Relishes, chutneys, sauces, jams, jellies, and marmalades.
Aberfeldy fruit products
Award winning free range pork
Stu’s Free Range Pork
Amazing chocolate, cacao nibs and delicious cocoa beans
Proper cheeses and baked goods
Walnuts & walnut products, grown and made in NZ

Specialists in Med foods, with a few local products

$100 hamper for 1st prize

Specialist imported and quality local ingredients

Goodies and gift voucher

PS. I promise the next post will be a recipe!

    I live nowhere near there, but am stoked to see what you get. Can’t wait to see the winner.

    A: Thanks Alessandra :) You’ve reminded me I should let the Slow Food Chch group know!

    R: Hehe, well if you ever do visit New Zealand, it looks like Spring is the time to do it!
