Recipes to Riches

foodnetwork.jpgAre you watching The Food Network’s Recipes to Riches this season? If not, you’re missing out on some fun television and some great new food products. The 8 episode one-hour reality tv show gives homegrown Canadian amateur chefs the opportunity to compete, showcasing their own recipes, for a chance to win a grand prize worth $250,000.

Each week celebrity food judges put a number of contestants through the drill, letting them introduce their own creations in that week’s theme. Contestants are judged on taste, presentation, originality, the story behind the recipe and its’ suitability to become a mass produced grocery store product. At the end of each episode, Galen Weston (Executive Chairman of Loblaws and the subject of my sister’s strange crush) chooses one recipe to become the latest President’s Choice product. Each weekend there’s a new product available for Canadians to buy in their supermarkets and eventually the consumers will get to vote for the grand prize winner.
The show, the contestants, their stories and their products have quickly won my family and I over. We find ourselves rooting for our favourite recipe and looking forward to trying it at home. Last week’s Chipotle Chili Bites didn’t exactly look like this, but they make for some delicious after school snacks.

My kids are looking forward to tonight’s “Cookies and Squares” themed episode. I’m looking forward to my kids being inspired to get creative in the kitchen! Check out this fun Canadian show Wednesday evenings at 9pm on the Food Network.
