Win Your Way to FBC2016 With Mushrooms Canada

Win Your Way to FBC2016 With Mushrooms Canada

This contest is brought to you by FBC2016 Gold Sponsor, Mushrooms Canada.

We’re headed back for another fabulous FBC Conference, and what better way to celebrate than with some delicious food!

We want you to Blend & Extend your favourite appetizer recipe for the chance to win the Mushrooms Canada “Appetizer Spotlight” at FBC2016. In addition to showcasing your winning recipe, the winner will receive 1 full conference pass including 2 nights accommodation, all conference meals and events!*

That’s right, you’ll join attendees in sampling your mouthwatering blended appetizer and be part of the festivities all weekend long! Simply combine finely chopped mushrooms and ground beef to create a flavourful and unique appetizer. Full contest details below.

What Is Blend & Extend?

If you haven’t heard, Blend & Extend  is a great new concept, blending finely chopped mushrooms into your favourite ground beef dishes. Blending mushrooms into meals like tacos, lasagna, and burgers adds another serving of vegetables to your plate, boosts the nutritional profile of the dish, adds volume to meals, and helps extend portion sizes.

You have from June 27th until August 22nd, to create an original appetizer recipe using The Blend concept, with the ground meat of your choice. Submissions must be original recipes, with at least 2 photos (minimum 800 pixels wide) and are limited to one entry per FBC member. Submissions will be based on:

  • ease of preparation
  • use of accessible ingredients
  • flavours
  • photography, etc.

The winning recipe, announced Friday September 9th, will be awarded the coveted “Appetizer Spotlight” at the Food Bloggers of Canada Friday night reception in Toronto, and will be invited to join us at FBC2016!

All submissions will be posted on the blog, and will have the recipe added to the Mushrooms Canada Recipe Library for all to see (and drool over) with full credit and links back to their blog, of course! Any recipes including ground beef may also be considered for inclusion on the Mushrooms Canada and Ontario Beef micro-site.

      Hi Julia,
      I didn’t realize you had moved out of Canada – we’ll update your membership to Abroad. I’ll have to check with the folks at Mushrooms Canada regarding your question. I’ll keep you posted!

    Hi Melissa,
    In the info says “Simply combine finely chopped mushrooms and ground beef…” . Later in the post it says “…with the ground meat of your choice…” Just confirming if you need to use beef.

    *Contest is not open to Quebec residents?? Oh man, why must Quebec complicate everything so much all the time? *sigh*
