Food Network Casting Call in Vancouver – Recipe to Riches

Calling all Canadian home cooks! So you think you have THE recipe to take down all other recipes? Well, now is your chance to prove not only that, but to also win $250,000! No, that is not a typing error, it really says TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS (the largest cash prize in Canadian reality show history)!

The Food Network is on its way to Vancouver to pick up candidates for their new show, Recipe to Riches. The show is embarking on a cross-country tour and will be touching down in Vancouver on Saturday, February 12.

Judges will be looking for Canada’s best recipes in seven different food categories that range from appetizers to entrees to desserts. The winners of each category will receive $25,000 and will have their recipe developed into a President’s Choice® branded product available in select Loblaw grocery stores across the country. The Canadian public will then vote for their favourite among the category winners and that person will take home the $250,000 grand prize!

Produced by Temple Street Productions and Shaw Media, “Recipe to Riches ups the ante of reality food programming in Canada,” say David Fortier and Ivan Schneeberg, Co-Presidents of Temple Street Productions.  “We are offering Canadian food enthusiasts an opportunity to share their most delicious recipes with the entire country.”

The actual categories available to enter are: Appetizers, Sweet & Savoury Snacks, Cakes, Sweet Pies, Savoury Pies, Entrees and Frozen Treats. Your recipe will be judged on presentation, taste, originality, story behind the recipe and suitability of the recipe to mass production (since your winning recipe will be turned into a President’s Choice® product!). Make sure you come prepared to sell your story – what makes your recipe so special? What’s the secret behind your dish?

If you are interested in competing you are encouraged to register on the Recipe to Riches website. Be sure to read the competition rules thoroughly before you start fine tuning and preparing your winning dish!
