My Entry in the Whole Foods Foodie Fantasy Vacation Contest

For those of you who have been following me on my culinary adventures, cooking has been a learning experience for me.  With each dish and each blog post, I take the time to research, not only about the ingredients and techniques, but about the history of a dish, as well as the cuisines and cultures of the people and/or nations who identify themselves through those dishes.

I recently came across a contest sponsored by Whole Foods called the Foodie Fantasy Vacation.  It is a trip from Berlin to Paris, with stops in Amsterdam and Bruges in between.  What really caught my attention is that there will be two producer visits on this vacation.  I would love the opportunity to see how ingredients are grown or food products are made firsthand by producers during this vacation, along with the opportunity to try the cuisines of the Germans, Dutch, Belgians and French.  So, I decided that I would submit an entry for the contest.  Here is my entry:

I submitted it today and you can see my entry as it is submitted at this website.  (Note: Whole Foods is conducting this contest through Facebook, and you may have to accept the Contests Application in order to view the video.  Please accept the application, because I will need your votes ... more about that below.  you can always remove the Contest application after this contest is over.) 

The entry period for the contest runs through April 3. Beginning on Tuesday, April 5, the public will be able to vote for their favorite video.  I really need everyone to vote for my video on Tuesday, because, the next day, on Wednesday, April 6, Whole Foods will be choosing the finalists.  Assuming I am a finalist, the voting will continue until April 13, and the entry that receives the most votes will win. So, I will need everyone to vote like he or she lives in Chicago -- vote early and often.  Well, the rules allow you to only vote once per day, but that still permits you to vote "often." 

I will provide more information as I get it.  Thank you all for your support and encouragement with my cooking and my blog and, as always ...
