Beringer Great Steak Challenge


Guess What?  This is a portion of an email I received today!

Dear Ron:

Congratulations! We are pleased to inform you that you have been selected as one of the Regional Finalists for Region 1 in the Beringer Great Steak Challenge for your Filet Mignon with Balsamic Shallot Reduction. As a Regional Finalist, you have won $1,000 to use towards travel expenses to attend the Regional Final at the Comcast Bite of Seattle at the Seattle Center in Seattle, WA.  Once there, you will cook your recipe live against 9 other Finalists from your area.  The winner will then fly to Beringer Vineyards in Napa Valley for a chance to win $15,000 at the Beringer Great Steak Challenge Finale, filmed and aired by the Cooking Channel! 

Woo-Hoo!  I'm cooking at the Bite of Seattle as a Regional Finalist!  I am so pumped.
