Life is hard.
I’ve been asked to be a judge a this year’s Kawarthas/Northumberland Butter Tart Taste Off, meaning that I’m going to have to sit down and taste the absolute best tarts the area has to offer.
If that weren’t enough, I’ve also been asked to host the 3rd Annual Peterborough Downtown Market Iron Chef Challenge, meaning that I’ll have to hang out with some of the area’s finest chefs and — you guessed it, try their food.
I know that each and every one of you feel my pain.
But there is one thing you can do to make it better. And that’s to come out to these great events and take part in the fun.
See below for details on each:
