Culinarie Hunt 2015
Culinaire Hunt Recap of Team Hot Sauce:
To being, let's meet my partner in foodie noms, Lisa (follow her @LisaVNguyen)! She is the Community Manager of @Zomato Calgary and is also a blogger herself on LemonLimeLisa! It was my pleasure in having a partner I was able to vibe so well with from the get go! (I mean we practically had the same outfit without pre plan!)
Below, in no specific order is the 26/30 spots we hit up yesterday. Lots of hugs, love and thank you(s) to those who were involved and for the yummy treats we got for completing each of our challenges! (After all, who isn’t food driven right?)
Heritage Park @SelkirkGrille, where we took some vintage photos + had a sample burger!
So usually liquor stores organize their wine by where they are from, however here @Vinestylesyyc they do it with a bit more style and personality! #loveeeethis Check them out on Kensington #yyc !
Met the piggy @WURSTCalgary | & it was my first time in a #yyc Wurst, the tree in the centre of the restaurant was very captivating! Which reminds me that I really got to explore downtown 17th just a little more!
@Gordough's pizza here! Lisa and I folded a pizza box and had some childhood creativity time with crayons! #TeamHotSauce made it into the top 5 designs!
Prizes galore, there were over 40+ prizes for all the teams who worked super hard in hitting up all 30 spots! Below are some of the goodies Lisa and I got! (Raspberry Honey from @HoneyHouse, Harissa Portobello Mushroom Jerky from Umami Snacks Co, 2 teas from @TeaKeabar (Cream Early Grey + Best Friends), Torills Table Waffle mix and a little bottle of port (not shown in photo.)!
Below is a little shout out of thank yous to those who help organized this event! (I'm sure there is a huge team behind this, however to name a few I personally met yesterday: @vineanddine, @cuzilikechoclat, @momwhoneedswine thank you + all the Sponsors from restaurants, retailers and @CrossRoadsMarket, + the volunteers!
The day was flying by with excitement and lots of food, this scavenger hunt was a great excuse to explore Calgary with Lisa (Thank you @Zomato!) while discovering new gems around town, singing Frozen to kitchen staff @NainasKitchen, busking for Charity and getting to know how much we know about the food we eat! I look forward to more wicked foodie events that are coming up for Calgary, and for next year’s Culinaire Hunt!
