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. Bloggers need not contribute every month to be considered.

For December, we’re challenging bloggers to bring their best holiday game, with the most festive and delightful food tales about winter holidays past. We’re looking for blog posts of any length, in either French or English.

To enter, simply publish your entry within the month of December and post it on the CHC Facebook page before midnight on Sunday, December 31. (To guarantee being included in the January newsletter roundup, it would be best to post a few days before the deadline.)
