Well, we didn't win, but we had a helluva time competing and getting to know the other contestants and judges and bloggers and journalists who came to watch! :) the adrenaline was pumping ALL DAY! We started cooking at 11:30 and it didn't end until 5! I was so exhausted by the end of it but so grateful to have had the experience of cooking and serving my food to the public. I now have a newfound respect for people who compete on all of those shows like Top Chef and Project Runway... it is HARD!! I can't imagine being in such a high pressure situation for an extended period of time.

I am definitely going to enter again next year, now that I have a better idea about the sort of food that is most "adaptable" for a restaurant (the winning recipe is going on the menu of the sponsoring restaurant). I never imagined my cute little pot of pasta would be so hard to plate for 20 people!

In any case, just wanted to thank everyone for your votes & cheers from the sidelines :) we had a blast and I would love to do it all over again... next year, once I've had time to recover from the braciole :)
