Kitchen Aid Cook for the Cure
It’s probably the world’s worst-kept secret that Laura and I are both slightly obsessed with cooking shows. We love every kind – educational, competition shows, broadcast, online – and our kids do, too. And it’s also possible that we sometimes stage at-home versions of our favourites. Ahem. If you’re a cooking show fan, too, then you’re going to want to get in on this action. Our lovely pals over at KitchenAid invited us to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation KitchenAid Cook for the Cure Culinary Showdown last year and it was such a blast. Well, it’s coming around again and there’s still time for you to be up on stage with Lynn Crawford, Susur Lee, Vikram Vij, Marc McEwan, among others, for a great night of culinary competition.
Here’s how it works: spend the next couple of weeks fundraising for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and keep track on your own personal fundraising page. Raise $1,000 and you’ll be attending the event on November 29th, enjoying a gourmet meal and watching the show. Raise $2,500 and you’ll be a part of the Celebrity Chef School earlier in the day and then be on stage as part of the competition on the 29th. Oh, you know, just cooking alongside of the best chefs in Canada…. As a bonus, the first 30 people to raise $2,500 between now and November 17th will win a private dinner with Lynn Crawford at her gorgeous restaurant, Ruby Watchco.
So get going, the Culinary Showdown has lots of great ideas for ways to fundraise and more details about this great event. Good luck!
