Edmonton’s Popular Food Competition and Fundraiser is back for its third year!

Edmonton, AB, March 5, 2014–  One of last year’s most successful Edmonton Food events; the Culinary Arts Cook-off; which pits Edmonton’s chefs against one another in a contest to produce the best dish, is back for its third year.

Hosted by City TV Breakfast Television’s Ryan Jesperson, this one of a kind event will feature top celebrity judges from around the city as they taste and choose the city’s best pasta from a host of amazing competitors.  The brainchild of Edmonton food blogger, Karlynn Johnston (The Kitchen Magpie), the cook off features awards for People’s Choice, Judges Choice and Kids Choice awards. Now in its third year, the theme for this year’s cook off is Noodles and Doodles.

The 2014 competition is slated to be held at Mount Royal School at 11303 55 street in Edmonton on March 15, 2014 between 11am and 2:30pm.

Edmonton’s top chefs will be pitted against one another in a competition to make and present the best pasta in the city. With options for all tastes, this is an event that definitely shouldn’t be missed.

“This year, don’t come expecting your typical pasta. These creations from Edmonton’s best chefs will take your taste buds in directions you never thought possible.” – Karlynn Johnston 

Samples of these delicacies will be available at family friendly prices of $2 per sample.

Judging these dishes will be a host of local food celebrities Liane Faulder, food writer for the Edmonton Journal and the Eat My Words Blog, Phil Wilson the local food blogger at, Valerie Lugonja from, Chef Stanley Townsend, the head of the Culinary Arts Program at NAIT and Jennie Marshall the leader of YELP Edmonton.
