But, I wanted to actually compete! Well: I received a call a couple weeks ago that I am one of 10 regional finalists in the Beringer Great Steak Challenge! There are 10 regionals across the US this summer and the winner from each region will travel to the beautiful Beringer Vineyards in Napa Valley, CA to compete for a cash prize! But everyone is a winner--I received $1000 for being a finalist! My region consists of PA, NY, NJ, DE, DC, and MD. Oh, the kicker--I will have only 30 minutes to grill!
I'm terribly excited to compete again--the event will be held in Washington, DC on Thursday, August 5th. If I am lucky enough to win, the national challenge will be held in October and filmed by Food Network and The Cooking Channel... If not, I'm certain it will be a blast!
