Giveaway: #ABFoodFight Culinary Combat Supporting the Alberta Diabetes Foundation

Alberta Food Fight for Alberta Diabetes Foundation

On Feb. 12, Taste Alberta and the Alberta Diabetes Foundation are teaming up to put on the #ABFoodFight Celebrity Culinary Combat! TV food personality, author, and home economist Mairlyn Smith will “battle” local Chef Steve Brochew of the award-winning French-Canadian restaurant Chartier, in a timed food box challenge hosted by the Edmonton Journal’s food and feature writer Liane Faulder

The event, which takes place at The Westin Edmonton downtown from 11:30-1:30, will teach attendees about healthy eating and eating local, and how these two things can help turn the tide against the diabetes epidemic in Alberta. 

The Alberta Diabetes Foundation, with its #ABFoodFight campaign, is taking action to share information to help arm Albertans with the tools they need to create a healthy lifestyle, including using the rich, healthy, tapestry of products available locally.

Tickets to this exciting and sure-to-be delicious fundraiser are $60 each (or $360 for a table of six). 

Buy tickets to the #ABFoodFight Culinary Combat 

All proceeds will support the Alberta Diabetes Foundation funding innovative research for the prevention, treatment and cure of diabetes, so it’s a truly wonderful cause, which is why I’m very excited to partner with Taste Alberta and the Alberta Diabetes Foundation to raise awareness for the event— and give away a pair of tickets!

    I found Top Chef Junior. To listen to 12 year-olds speak like they’ve been around for 50 about the French chefs that inspire them. These kids can cook!!! It’s down to the final 3 and I can’t wait to see who takes it. Just amazing!

I also have been a longtime fan of The Great British Bakeoff, and was so excited to watch the first season of the The Great Canadian Bakeoff this past year! It’s amazing what home bakers can do in such a short time! I’m always inspired to try a new recipe!! And it was so amazing that the top three finalists were positive women role models representing all ages and backgrounds. Excited for the next season!

    Hi Linda:

    My all-time favourite TV food show is “Mind of a Chef;’ however, it’s not truly a ‘competition,’ per se. So, to answer your question, I have to agree with the posters who appreciate Chopped.

  • suzanne dennis

    i love all the cooking competition shows, but BEST hands down:
    COME DINE WITH ME!

    love watching how people decorate, shop and then execute complete dinners for 4 other strangers….HILARIOUS

    thanks for the contest Linda

  • Convinced @mikethyking to stop at a couple of #InstagrammableWalls we missed on our last Calgary visit. 😜😊📸 He’s a great #InstagramHusband. We also visited a pop-up wall students worked on at @itsallatthejube (swipe 👈🏻 to see). They said the project was inspired by my Guide to #IGWallsofYYC blog post! 🙏🏻 When blogs/social media inspire action... 💕 It was really cool to see (you can see it too! On display til Mar 30). 💖

  • This #longweekend @mikethyking & I are in Calgary & Banff! I was excited to try sandwich shop & deli @EmpireProvisions and it did not disappoint! 🐷 The porchetta sandwich with rosemary garlic salsa verde was UNBELIEVABLE. One of those first bite makes you exclaim oh my god, kind of dishes. 🤤🙏🏻Must return to try their other sandwiches!! Thanks for the recommendation @jaypeacee! Happy Long Weekend everyone!!

  • Ahead of #ValentinesDay 💕, I thought I’d throw back to this super cute photo of Olive on her Valentine’s spaghetti date with Australian Labradoodle Flynn! He didn’t really share the noodles. They’re no longer together. 👀😂 Click the link in my bio for some Valentine’s (or galentines or palentines) #ExploreEdmonton date ideas I shared on @CTVEdmonton this week! 💗

  • This week I tried a vegan restaurant AND the #SuperFoods menu at @milestonesrestaurants, so I’m feeling pretty healthy right now. 😉 This is the fiery (and it was fiery 🔥) Tunisian Chicken on quinoa and vegetables from #MilestonesRestaurant. They have a special Super Foods menu running until Feb. 25, that I was invited to try this weekend! It features tasty dishes specifically packed with things that are really good for your body, like antioxidants, fibre, omega-3s, protein, vitamins, probiotics and calcium (#FoodwithBenefits!) I also really enjoyed the Tempura Green Beans and Sweet Potato Fries from this same menu! 😋 #sponsored
