Contest and Giveaway



I'm sooo excited! I love Kraft and I have always admired Anna Olson of the Food Network, so I was thrilled when they contacted me to help promote their latest contest: the Real Women of Philadelphia (Canada). Americans, check out the Real Women of Philadelphia (USA). I also have 3 giveaways for Canadians only, courtesy of Kraft Canada! Just leave a comment here and I will pick the winners at random on April 11th - the same day the competition begins!

Anna Olson will host the search for 4 of the next great cooking stars to be crowned the Real Women of Philadelphia. Together, the winners will help lead the site, host their own cooking videos, help contribute to a cookbook of Philly inspired recipes and take home $20,000 each.

The contest begins April 11th and runs for 8 weeks until June 5th. Each week, you will have a chance to show off your cooking skills and compete for the grand prize! Enter as often as you like, as many weeks as you like.

Here’s how the competition works: There are 4 categories of dishes: Appetizer, Side Dish, EntrĂ©e and Dessert. There will be 2 competition weeks for each dish. Every Monday of the competition, Anna will post a video of her cooking a dish that fits the category. Then you have until Sunday to submit a recipe video of you making your tastiest dish for that week’s category. Be as creative as you want with your recipe, and be sure to include cream cheese.

They'll pick 2 finalists each week, for a total of 16 finalists who will be flown to Toronto to meet Anna and participate in a fantastic cook-off event on July 6th. They they'll select 4 winners from the cook-off to be crowned the Real Women of Philadelphia. They’ll host this website for the rest of the year by starring in their own cooking videos and participating as a contributing editor within the community and contributing to an online cookbook.
