Also 💯🍌.

  • The best volunteer gigs are ones that involve eating delicious food... 😍 Congrats to @WoodWorkYEG @chef_porter for winning Judge's Choice at the Mount Royal School @TheCulinaryArtsCookOff fundraiser! The winning dish was this Israeli pesto couscous with duck fat, sage, honey balsamic & cheese. 🙏🏻 Kids Choice (and also my 2nd pick) was a butter bacon chicken fat soaked pasta from @shanemedericchartrand!

This is their tasty wood-grilled pork chop with pickled mustard, whipped potatoes and braised red cabbage. I also had their lemon-fried calamari which was delicious!
