The autumnal equinox marks the return of our once famous international cooking event that brought together business owners from both Canada and the US for a weekend food extravaganza. After 2 years without our annual food festival due to severe weather conditions, we were both excited and anxious to bring back the Canadian Bulletin Board Food Cooking Contest for 2018.
The event took place at Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton, running from Friday, October 26th to Sunday 28th, and attracting more than 192 food vendors and aspiring cooks from 47 US states and 5 Canadian provinces. The stadium ended up being the perfect location because it had plenty of room. And, better yet, the weather was perfect at a moderate 60 degrees with sun shining and not a cloud in the sky. The event was open to the public, so exact numbers were not tracked. However, it’s estimated that more than 1,300 were in attendance for the food tasting and entertainment.
Events of this scale, such as the Canadian Bulletin Board Food Cooking Contest, require a tremendous amount of planning and attention to detail, so we must thank all our participants, vendors, and sponsors for their support this year. We couldn’t have hosted a successful event without you.
First place was awarded to Polina Perju of Let’s Remodel, a Portland kitchen and bathroom renovation company based in Oregon. Polina and her team of interior designers and remodeling contractors are the go-to source for luxury home makeover projects.
Second place was awarded to Miles Gilbert of AZM Corporation, a Toronto culinary teaching service. Miles and his food experts teach people how to cook.
Third place was awarded to Jake Anderson of Queens Hood Cleaning Pros, a NYC restaurant hood cleaner. Jake’s team of restaurant hood and exhaust cleaners aim to deliver unmatched, reliable service for a sparkling commercial kitchen.
Events of this scale require a tremendous amount of planning. Numerous parties were involved with both the project management, coordination, and food vendor scheduling. Thank you to all our participants, vendors, and sponsors for their support this year. We couldn’t have hosted a successful event without you. See you at the 2019 Canadian Bulletin Board Food Cooking Contest.
