Recipe to Riches: the final pitch

The Recipe to Riches finalists, along with judges Tony Chapman, Dana McCauley and Laura Calder

Today is the last day of voting for season one of the President’s Choice product development spectacular Recipe to Riches. The show’s producers flew the six finalists in from across Canada to meet each other for the first time before they film the final episode this weekend. We stopped in at the event, held in the cooking studio at the new Loblaws at Maple Leaf Gardens, to find out why they think they should take home the $250,000 grand prize. See their answers after the jump.

    We LOVE the Savoury Bannock-topped pie….my son asked for not one, not two, but three helpings!!!! And he hates cooked vegetables. Kudos to you Melaney! I’m going to buy as many as I can!

    We enjoyed the Grandma Glo’s Luscious Lemon Pudding Cake, we have served it to friends and it was a great success.
    She should win the Grand Prize.
