CHC Canada 150 Food Blog Challenge 2017

CHC invites food bloggers to participate in our Canada 150 Food Blog Challenge. We’ll be naming a topic for every month and publicizing entries throughout Canada’s sesquicentennial year. At the end of 2017, we’ll choose our favourite participating blogs and sponsor them for entry into Taste Canada’s 2018 blog category. Bloggers need not contribute every month to be considered.

April 2017: First Fresh Foods of Spring

What are some of those traditional meals and foods that signal the end of winter for you, like dandelion greens, rhubarb, wild leeks, strawberries or nettles? This topic could also include foods associated with spring feasts and festivals like Easter; the topic is wide open, as long as it has something to do with Canadian food history.

We’re looking for blog posts of any length, in either French or English, that relate to the topic. To enter, simply publish your entry within the month of April and post it on the CHC Facebook page before midnight on Sunday, April 30. (To guarantee being included in the May newsletter roundup, it would be best to post by April 25.)
