TORONTO, June 29, 2011 /CNW/ - A culinary throw down is coming to
Toronto this fall with the TABASCO® Brand Street Heat Junior Chef Meet. Open to culinary students from
across Canada, TABASCO® Brand is on the hunt for the nation's hottest junior chef. Finalists
must wow judges with a street food-inspired dish to claim the title and
take home $2,500 in cash and $2,500 in Garland prizes.
"In 1999, I became North America's first TABASCO® Brand Hottest Chef and I'm thrilled to be back to support this
initiative which encourages the incredible talent of the newest
generation of chefs," said judging panel member and celebrity chef
David Adjey. "As a judge, I'm looking for dishes with creativity,
flavour and originality. I have great expectations that today's
up-and-coming chefs will bring some spectacular ideas from the street
to the competition."
To enter, contestants must create an original street food-inspired
recipe and feature at least one flavour from the TABASCO® Brand Pepper Sauce Family of Flavours. Three finalists will be invited
to an all-expense paid cook-off event in Toronto - November 7th, 2011 -
where they will have 45 minutes to prepare and serve their dish for a
panel of judges.
With a global estimate of 2.5 billion people gobbling up street food
every day, it's one of the fastest growing movements in the culinary
world1. Canada's multicultural population has created an appetite for
flavours from around the world and as a result, street food vendors are
branching out from traditional hotdogs and French fries to offer ethnic
flavours like Korean BBQ tacos, Indian curries, sushi and more.
"Street food is more than sausages and poutine," said TABASCO® Brand Corporate Chef Ralph Bettany. "With options that are virtually
limitless, we're looking for original international cuisine that mixes
traditional ethnic flavours with the latest trends." Bettany continued,
"It's our goal that, through the TABASCO® Brand Street Heat Junior Chef Meet, we can provide students with an
opportunity to showcase their talent and build the confidence to
succeed in this industry."
Students can submit their recipe submissions online at Tabascostreetheat.ca. Entry deadline is October 7th, 2011 at 5:00 pm EST. Three finalists
will be brought to Toronto for the live final cook-off event on
November 7th, 2011. Information and contest rules are available online
at Tabascostreetheat.ca or check out the video on YouTube.
