Hi friends! Colette here. If you receive our newsletter, you may already know about our exciting partnership with food blogger, Christie, from Zestuous. If not, here’s a quick recap:
Christie was our runner-up AND social media fan-favorite from our Sliced Contest we hosted earlier this year. When she came to us with a sponsorship request for the World Food Championships in Las Vegas, it was an easy answer. We loved each and every recipe Christie created throughout the process of our contest (seriously; check out her BACONuts, Skirt Steak and Toffee Bar recipes!), and she clearly earned her Saucy Mama title!
And so, Saucy Mama is the proud sponsor of Christie’s journey at the 2013 WFC, where more than 400 chefs and cooking fanatics will compete to win over $300,000 in cash prizes in seven categories. Oh, and there’s a shot at some big endorsements and possibly even a featuring on a national TV series about the event…how cool is that?
Christie will be staying in the “Saucy Mama Suite” – where pre-event meet ups will take place – at the Golden Nugget Hotel. She’ll be battling in the sandwich category against 50 top-notch competitors, and the top 10 will move on to an additional round, whose winner will compete in the finals against each of the category winners. Christie will be using at least one Saucy Mama product in her sandwich recipe, and we’re SO excited to try it!
In addition, I will also be down in Vegas to capture all the fun on social media and cheer on Christie! I can’t wait to meet her in person, along with her pals Beth and Ally (side note: Ally was one of our SKINNY MAMA contestants last year!).
Make sure you follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to get updates from this exciting weekend. Or better yet – let us know if YOU will be there (November 7-10) and want to join in on the fun! The WFC is FREE and open to the public
