You may remember this post from last year. The Courvoisier Collective is back again this year, this time with the theme of food. Both amateur and professional chefs are invited to participate by creating a recipe that involves the famous cognac, which will then be voted on by a chef judging panel. Allowed recipes include soups, salads, hors d’oeuvres and entrées. 3 student chef and 3 at-home chefs will be selected to come to Toronto and possibly win $1000 and have their recipe featured at an exclusive tasting event.
The dates for participation are as follows:
July 3rd to August 24th – Users can submit recipes and vote for their favourites.
August 24th – September 7th: The chef judging panel (you can learn more about them on the site) review each recipe.
September 7th: Six finalists are contacted and invited to attend an exclusive tasting event in October where their dish will be recreated and sampled.
Alas, though I wanted to create a recipe, the summer of moving has gotten away from me. Looking at the recipes already posted, I can’t wait to see which are chosen, as they are all mouth-watering. Follow them with the hashtag #CVCollective on Twitter.
Disclaimer: I was invited to participate by Matchstick Inc. I was given a kit that included a spatula and a cognac glass. All opinions are my own.
