Follow-up thank you’s for the “Prince Edward County Chef Challenge” fundraising event >

What a day! – beautiful, cool and crisp, sun shining down on the grounds of The CAPE, leaves falling gently.  Couldn’t have asked for better.

Modern Memories – Ashley Kennedy, offered us an in kind donation for photos of the day – view them on Ashley’s website here.

The teams competing were amazing and enthusiastic.  Without their participation the day wouldn’t have happened.  A huge thank you to Wellington Home Hardware (overall winning team!); Ainsworth Funeral Home, Wellington; CIBC Picton; Scotia Bank Picton; and Scotia Bank Wellington.

The competition judges were professional, and entertaining as well, with helpful comments and knowledge given to each team on the dishes presented.  Thank you Michael Potters, Davide Del Brocco, and Ramona Roblin for a job well done!
