Delicious leftover chicken and omelet recipes that will have you crowing

This year our recipe contest took us on an amazing adventure that more than satisfied all our longings for culture, food and hospitality. St John’s, NL, you outdid yourself!

You have become so much more than a place to get great fish and chips. You are now a thriving foodie destination! Your restaurants, cafés, and pubs offered more than we ever expected.

From the minute we arrived until the moment we boarded the plane to return home we immersed ourselves into this amazing city. We experienced humble offerings such as French fries topped with delicious dressing, deep fried pigs ears, all the way up to elegant brunches and charcuterie plates. We tried it all and were never left wanting.

In the midst of all our feasting and frolicking we made time to judge our annual recipe contest entrants. Chef Roger Andrews from the College of the North Atlantic made it effortless by prepping and preparing every recipe carefully, even if he was at times tempted to put his own twist on them.

Our judges this year—Jonathan Richler of Flavour Culture Jewish Deli, Rock Recipes author and blogger Barry C. Parsons, and local foodie and photographer Ray Fennelly—had the tasty but difficult task of choosing a winner, and while there were many wonderful dishes, they were able to narrow down the selections.

With no further ado we are pleased to present this year’s winning entries. We hope you enjoy!
