The result: come back next year and maybe a little hope for a miracle call. [insert small sigh here].
Folks, regardless, It was a great experience. The adrenaline was at all time highs and just loved pushing myself so hard, creatively and physically.

Roasted Pepper Trio with Matching Sauces
As I described it to the food judge, I wanted to play with contrasts here. Colors both in food and in presentation, flavors. A real roller coaster of tastes.
Filling: Hand cut Pork Belly and Cranberries,
Sauce: Roasted Peppadew Harissa Sauce
Filling: Bulgur Wheat, Sweet Red Onion Sauce and Halloumi Cheese
Sauce: “Salsa Piccante”, with mild creole twist
Filling: Swordfish and Italian Eggplant Saute
Sauce: Simple Lime Vinaigrette
Palate Cleansing Salad:
Sunchoke and Jicama Salad in Mandarine Vinaigrette,
topped with rum infused sweet cranberries
The salad was my favorite. Maybe because it was the quickest to make, and most appetizing after so much work.
En Garde !
P.S. Almost forgot , "Yo Bubs" , my little sis, I could not have done it without you .
