Friend's mom - Glo McNeill - Recipe to Riches Contest - Luscious Lemon Pudding

My friend's mom, Glo, (82), from Lunenburg, NS is a finalist in the Recipe to Riches contest.  She has already won $25,000 so far by winning the section for Sweet Puddings and Pies.  All the episodes of the contest have been filmed and videos & recipes are available for viewing online.  As you might imagine, it has been a very exciting time for the family.

Probably many of you have seen Galen Weston Jr., Loblaw Executive Chairman, in the TV ads for President Choice products.  The winner will have their product become a President's Choice product in the stores.

The 3 contestants in each category had to be able to produce 250 servings of their recipe in an industrial kitchen with guidance from Product Development Pros and have the products turn out as good as when the judges tested it using the original recipe.  Then with the aid of a Marketing Team, the contestants had to arrange a public marketing taste-testing demonstration - with surveys - to determine whether or not there was a market for their product.

The final voting for $250,000 prize begins on Wed 07 Dec.
