There are only a few things that I will wake up early in the morning for…
1. An unexpected zombie attack, from which I must run away.
2. To catch a flight.
3. To catch my neighbour stealing my newspaper.
4. A delicious breakfast meal.
Now, to the point, reason #4 will be why I am setting my alarm clock for 5:30AM this coming week. I am taking part in Breakfast Television’s ‘Best Breakfast’ (dare I say) battle next week. I was asked to join the ’Best Breakfast’ judging panel. I was extremely flattered, very excited, and slightly intimidated, to sit on this panel which also includes renknownd food critic John Gilchrist and Avenue Magazine’s executive editor Jennifer Hamilton. In addition, Jill Belland will be hosting this friendly culinary competition. She’s seems like a sweetheart! Aside from getting over the butterflies in my stomach, I knew I had to do one thing before Monday: Get my haircut, which I did. Today.
So, bring it on Monday! I’m ready to roll!
We’ll be dining at four different establishments that specialize in breakfast (obviously), and then head into the BT studio on Friday morning to announce one restaurant as having the ‘Best Breakfast’! Yes, there are a lot of great breakfast diners in Calgary, but BT has narrowed it down to four that will duke it out.
Here is the schedule for the coming week…
Monday: Red’s Diner
Tuesday: Blackfoot Truck Stop
Wednesday: Galaxie Diner
Thursday: Diner Deluxe
Friday: And the winner is…?
Feel free to check back here for updates throughout the week. Although my scores for each restaurant will remain top secret until Friday (points for taste, value, and visual appeal), I’ll be sharing a short recap of each day’s adventure. As well, I’ll also share the BT video clip, just in case you’re not planning on getting up early next week.
If you are up and about in the mornings next week, feel free to tune into Breakfast Television between 7AM-8AM for all of the breakfast-y excitement! Woot!
