When I found out that Harry Manx was playing shows in my area (Northeast Alberta), I got genuinely excited. I reached out to his publicist through his website, offering both the article you are about to read and a full episode of my "Soft Rock Cafe" radio show to air March 13th. He thought it fine idea and figured Harry would be, and he was. The following conversation took place on February 24th, 2016, just last week... I hope you enjoy it as much as Harry and I did.
BEHIND THE GOLD
The Canadian Culinary Championships (CCC) have come and gone for 2016. It was a fantastic whirlwind of meet and greets, shopping, food prep, wine pairings and for the guests in attendance, great food and drink.
The planning and introductions started on Thursday at a meet and greet at Sandhill Winery where chefs were given their box of mystery wine and introduced to their helpers from Okanagan College Culinary School. Friday was shopping, prepping and preparing dishes for the Mystery Wine Competition and the People’s Choice Award. Bright and early Saturday morning was the Black Box competition, and then chefs and helpers were back at the Delta Grand preparing for the grand finale. Sleep was not on the agenda.
