January's Culinary Smackdown Battle - Salmon on Brenda's blog over at, Brenda's Canadian Kitchen. Do you remember that Smoked Salmon Cardamom Spread? Yea that one! I raved about how incredibly delicious this spread was and I felt like a winner just for getting to make and eat it! Haha!
Now that I am metaphorically crowned Culinary Smackdown Battle winner it is my honor to get to host February's Culinary Smackdown. I have thought hard but not so long on what the challenge would be. I decided to go with Hand Held Meat "Pies". The possibilities are endless. Think along the lines of HotPockets, calzones, kolaches, etc. Meat in a shell that can be ate with your hands and maybe a fork to pick up any pieces that fall out.
Culinary Smackdown Battle - Hand Held Meat Pies will held throughout the month of February. Entries may be submitted starting February 1st, 2011 - February 27th, 2011. I will be announcing the winner on the morning of February 28th. All you have to do to enter is link up your entry below. I'll be looking forward to seeing all of the wonderful ideas you're going to submit!
I'm sure you're wondering what's in it for you. The winner will receive a $10.00 gift card for Barnes and Noble. Put it towards a new cookbook, DVD, or even towards a Caramel Macchiato from a Starbucks within the store. It's also redeemable online. If coffee is what you're putting it towards I recommend going in store for that purchase. Could you imagine the mess? Haha!
Let's get to linking up those Hand Held Meat "Pie" entries now! It doesn't have to be a new recipe. I'm more than happy to see what you've maybe already made on your blog. Only one entry per person please. If you would do me a favor pretty pretty please, mention my link/Pretend Chef in your submitted post. That would be greatly appreciated to help generate buzz. What's a competition without other competitors? A for sure win. Haha!
