Contest Time! 2018 Ambrosia Apple Chef of the Year
Our Most Popular Contest is Back
Last year, thousands of Ambrosia apple fans tested chef-crafted recipes and voted on their favourites. In the end, Chef Adair Scott’s Ambrosia Apple Fritters were the big winner and one lucky contest participant received an amazing Okanagan getaway just for voting.
Fast forward to 2018 and we’re doing it again with new chefs and new recipes for you to vote on. And, a brand new (and can we just say spectacular) prize to be won.
Without further ado, here are the details for the 2018 Ambrosia Apple Chef of the Year.
We asked top chefs in Vancouver to develop an original recipe featuring Ambrosia apples. And, boy did they deliver! We created videos of each chef making their recipe so you can see how it’s done.
Now, it’s up to you. We want to know which recipe you love the most. Test out each one at home and then vote for your favourite. When you do, you’ll get a ballot to enter our contest.
From those ballots, one lucky participant’s name will be drawn. The winner will get an amazing 3-day getaway in Osoyoos, BC. This grand prize includes:
- 3-night stay at Spirit Ridge Resort (recently added to the Hyatt Unbound Collection of top hotels around the world.)
- The “Land to Legacy” wine tour, tasting and lunch for two at the award-winning Nk’Mip Cellars
- $200 credit at the Solterra Desert Spa
- Passes to the Desert Cultural Centre
- $500 spending money to help you get to Osoyoos
As for the chefs, one of them will be crowned the 2018 Ambrosia Apple Chef of the Year! Will it be Chef Bardia Ilbeiggi from Farmer’s Apprentice with his Ambrosia Apples with Sake Kasu Caramel? Perhaps it will be the elegant Tai Carpaccio and Ambrosia apple crudo from Chef Alan Ferrer of Miku Restaurant? Or, maybe Chef Eva Chin from Royal Dinette‘s recipe for poached Ambrosia apples with whipped oat-cream dessert will take top prize? But, let’s not forget Chef Alessandro Vianello of Wildebeest and his mouth-watering tart featuring Ambrosia apples and caramel.
One of them will take the crown and it’s all up to you!
