Courvoisier Canada has launched a Call For Submissions for Ontario-based culinary students and anyone who has a passion for creating culinary masterpieces at home to submit a Courvoisier cognac-infused recipe at www.courvoisiercollective.com. In an effort to get aspiring chefs thinking innovatively and move away from the perception of cognac as strictly an apéritif at the end of a meal, the program is soliciting soup, salad, hors d’oeuvres and entrée recipes infused with Courvoisier cognac.
All recipes must be submitted by August 24, 2012 and will be eligible to win The People’s Choice award which will be determined by online voting. In addition, an esteemed panel of local chef judges, including Ici Bistro’s JP Challet, The Grove’s Ben Heaton and Turf Lounge’s Michael Kirkwood, will ultimately determine the top 3 culinary student recipe submissions and best 3 at-home chef recipe submissions. These winners will have the opportunity to sample their winning dishes to media and culinary influencers at a culinary showcase event in Toronto on October 17, 2012. At the event, a winning culinary student and winning at-home chef winner will be announced by the chef judging panel, and presented with a cash prize.
