We’re finalists in “Home chef of the year” / “Årets hemmakock”

Stockholm chili, however on the photo the homemade spelt crackers are substituted with nachos and I did the ovenroasted tomatoes with yellow pear shaped cherry tomatoes instead of red plum tomatoes.

I’m very excited to tell you that I’m competing together with my friends (and food bloggers) Anne and Lena in the cooking competition “Home chef of the year” organized by Tasteline. And guess what, we made it to the finals! We’re one of four finalists! Wow!

The competition has the theme “the new Sunday dinner” and the recipe needs to relate to a Swedish landskap (province) in some way and must contain specific parts of beef. I, Anne and Lena are representing Sörmland (the province where Stockholm is situated) ad our recipe is a Stockholm chili with oven roasted tomatoes and spelt crackers. It’s a quite spicy and hearty chili with 3 types of chili and Coca Cola (!), and beside the oven roasted tomatoes and spelt crackers it should be served with grated cheese, sour cream and chopped onions.

Our recipe (in Swedish) can be found here.
An article about us (in Swedish) can be found here.
All finalists can be found here.

The finals are on November 13th, don’t forget to keep your fingers crossed for us! I’m very nervous as we’ll be cooking live in front of the jury and other people… We’re the only women in the finals and the only team, the others are men and they are competing individually.

    Oooh how very exciting and congratulations with your finals!
    Atleast you don’t have to cook infront of the judges all by yourself. Being able to chat and share your thoughts with people you like is such a help in stressful situation.

    I will be crossing my fingers for you, checking the other recipes I’d definitely pick yours for a sunday dinner.

    Anyway, best of luck and go kick some ass! :)
