Courvoisier Collective: Culinary Masterpieces
Courvoisier is hosting another program courtesy of Matchstick, and this time it's all about the food. This is an opportunity for talented home cooks and culinary students to show off their talent, incorporating Courvoisier cognac as an ingredient in their dishes. So here's how it works: visit the Courvoisier Collective website, where you can submit a recipe, browse other people's recipes and vote for your favourite, or learn more about the chef judges. If you're going to get all social media about this, remember to use the hashtag #CVCollective.
August 17, 2012 - Deadline for submissions and voting.
September 7, 2012 - Six finalists (3 from each category - at home chef and culinary students) are chosen based on votes collected and judging panel scores.
October 17, 2012 - Finalists attend an exclusive tasting event in Toronto where their recipes will be sampled by all attendees. Two winners from each category will receive a $1,000 cash prize.
Submitters may only be from Ontario but voting is open to all residents of Canada.
Eligible recipes must fall under the category of soup, salad, h'ors d'oeuvres or entrée.
Recipes must contain Courvoisier cognac (either the VS, VSOP, Exclusif, or XO expression)
Submissions must include a photo of the finished recipe.
So get to work!! I'll be submitting a dish myself soon - still refining and working on it. Good luck everyone, and remember, if you're cooking with cognac, you have to be drinking it the entire time as well!!!
