Whistler’s First Ever Vegan BBQ Contest, August 31st, 2014
HUGE thank you to everyone for making Whistler’s first ever Vegan BBQ contest & Crafty by Nature event a great success and so much fun!
Three teams from Whistler competed to win the title of Whistler First Ever Vegan BBQ King or Queen with their vegan BBQ sliders. The Whistler Blackcomb Team, headed by Executive Chef Wolfgang Sterr, served a quinoa, bean and veggie burger, Team Four Seasons served a walnut and mushroom burger, with olive tapenade and cashew cheese, recipes created by chef Margaret Barnard, and Team Gardein, headed by Whistler local Kristine Leise, served Gardein’s Chick’n Sliders with a home-made pineapple salsa.
Extra special thanks to the awesome competitors and congratulations to Team Gardein on winning the contest! The sliders from all teams were so delicious and we can’t thank you all enough for coming out to this new event and putting so much effort into your burgers. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
And a big thank you to Claire Ruddy and AWARE for organising Crafty by Nature! We are looking forward to next year’s event already.
