Very little energy

I have zero energy, but I wanted to let you know that Dagmar has posted more about the competition, and she's posted plenty of photos, too. Go here!

I'm incredibly honoured that the jury actually liked our food! I thought all the competitors did a good job, and we were *so* sure we hadn't won. Kurt Weid who was the head judge is a real legend in cooking competitions - he judges all over the world, and he calmly informed us that he would use the same points system as he did when he judged, for example, the cooking olympics. Oh, no pressure at ALL! :)

One might think that cooking competitions is a bit like music competitions - it's all so subjective. And of course, it is. Food is, after all, very much a matter of personal preference. I don't know that I'll ever do something like this again, but it sure was a great experience!

Well I tried all the dishes (though cold) and I think your dish was superior!

Anne said...

Thank you Lisa!! That makes me very happy :) I have to try at least Skåne's dish, but I'll probably use another cut of meat.

Hi Anne,
Congrats again! You may have mentioned it already and I missed it - but I wonder what you won. Besides the honour, I mean. A new car? (Like "The Price is Right?")

Anne said...

Haha, no, not a car - that'd have been nice! :) We each won some cast iron pans, a really nice knife (by Porsche so that's the closest I get to the car..) and then we're going on a trip to Jamtland, a province in Sweden, to sample local food. Sometime next year, I think :)
