Marx Foods Ridiculously Delicious Challenge Winner Announced!

Events / Giveaways / Partnerships

Through a super-secret voting process (okay, it’s not that secret, you can read about how it worked here), my recipe for Fresh Wasabi Pasta with Pan-Seared Scallops in Brown Butter Sauce was chosen as the winner of the Ridiculously Delicious Challenge with 11 votes for the WIN! You guys, I am SO excited and thrilled that fellow entrants and the Marx Food judges thought my recipe was droolworthy!  And I’m SUPER DUPER excited about the prize – a case of pekin duck breasts,  two live geoducks, and a specialty sausage sampler, all three of which I wrote about for my first round entry.

I’d like to thank all of you for cheering me on during the various stages of the competition and keeping me going with such positive, encouraging comments! You guys rock, all of you. I have the best readers! 🙂 Thank you, thank you!

It has been absolutely wonderful working with the cool peeps at Marx Foods (if you follow me on twitter, you’ll know that I can’t eat fake wasabi anymore because of this challenge!), providing me with really awesome ingredients to play around with, from wild mushrooms to rare spices to authentic wasabi.  I hope I get the opportunity to work with them again this year!  Definitely check them out if you are ever in search of specialty foods – for perishables such as seafood or the like, they can overnight your order from Washington state. And stay tuned for more NoshGirl escapades as I put together recipe magic for the pekin duck breasts and sausage sampler, and figure out the best way to prepare a live geoduck. 😉

      tu sais avec quoi les paysans chinois ont remblayé la base de la grande muraille de Chine ? avec de simples paniers, portés en joug. On est loin de nos gros Caterpillars, pas vrai ? des mains d'hommes et de simples paniers….et c'est fou ce qu'on peut bâtir, comme ça, l'air de rien, jour après jo.9o…l&#3r;humme a la vue trop souvent déformée, il veut du monumental, quand c'est le petit peu de chaque jour qui fait avancer l'édifice…..

    Congrat! Your geoduck almost inevitably will come from puget sound, so "hi" from seattle. Can't wait to see what you make with them. I actually haven't tried them yet. Yum but strange looking.
