Friday night, I had the privilege of attending the 2024 Canadian Culinary Championships - Mystery Wine Challenge - People's Choice Award๐Ÿฅ‡๐Ÿฅ‡@greatkitchenparty
.
Congratulations to all the chefs involved in this intense competition. The chefs needed to create a dish to pair with the mystery wine. Each chef was given a tricky budget of $550 for the 250 guests. I was witnessing creativity at its best!!๐Ÿ˜‹
.
The winning dish๐Ÿฅ‡ (centered in the middle of the photo) was created by JP Dublado: Red Deer Resort and Casino, Red Deer AB
Dish: beet & soy cured albacore tuna - ponzu gel - tomato water - puffed wild rice - beet green oil
.
Amazing talent from all the chefs as they paired with the mystery wine (a 2021 Lailey Vineyard Zweigelt)๐Ÿท๐Ÿท

Where's my rubber ducky ๐Ÿค๐Ÿ˜‰?! 
.
A year ago this week, I was enjoying some bath time while in @discoverdominica ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ๐Ÿ˜
.
Dominica's lush scenery is extraordinary, and I'm grateful to have been invited to visit their beautiful island๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š
.
Visiting Wotten Waven Sulphur Springs was perfect to relax and rid of some unwanted stress. And the outdoor bath surrounded by all that green landscape was simply the BEST! An unforgettable experience! ๐Ÿคฉ
.
Dominica's adventure activities - diving, snorkeling, hiking, kayaking, swimming - are just some of the many ways to enjoy this tropical island.๐Ÿคฟ๐Ÿ™‚
.
Put Dominica on your travel list. You'll love it!!โค๏ธโค๏ธ
