OTTAWA, Jan. 21, 2013 /CNW/ - Today, Go RVing Canada announced the
winners of its Favourite RV Recipes Contest. The contest was launched in early November and encouraged all RV
enthusiasts across the country to submit their favourite RV related
recipe for a chance to win one of three amazing prizes.
Before finalizing the three prize winners, a 'top twenty' list of the
submitted recipes was chosen and evaluated by a panel of judges,
Phyllis Hinz and Lamont Mackay, otherwise known as 'The Cooking
Ladies'. Phyllis and Lamont are RV enthusiasts, the authors of nine
cookbooks and former restaurateurs. They combine their appetite for
adventure with meeting new people, seeing new places, sampling new
foods, and creating recipes.
The grand prize for the best overall recipe and winner of an RV Weekend
Getaway was awarded to Valerie Gervais of Ottawa, Ontario for her
healthy and unique Baby Spinach and Raspberry Salad. The second prize
of a $250 gift card for Williams-Sonoma online was awarded to Terri
Gilson of Calgary, Alberta for her quirky Pierogi Potato Salad and the
third prize of a six piece set of Wusthof Steak Knives was awarded to
Gail McBride of Edmonton, Alberta for her tangy Pickled Shrimp.
In order to choose the top twenty recipes, the Cooking Ladies equally
weighed each entry for RV-friendliness, ease of preparation, relevance
to the five categories, originality and creativity, as well as proper
completion of submission form, taste and visual appeal.
"We want to thank everyone across Canada who entered the contest and
submitted their favorite RV recipe," said Go RVing Canada Executive
Director Chris Mahony. "We received several delicious and unique
entries and selecting the winners was not an easy task. Go RVing Canada
will be sharing all of the top twenty recipes with Canadians so that
they may enjoy them on their RV travels this year."
Each one of the top twenty recipes will be revealed over the next twenty
days beginning today on Go RVing Canada's Facebook page. For more
