Win A Tasty Gift Just in Time for Valentines Day from Epicure Selections

Epicure Selections Prize Package

 Since we are all "foodies" and have been brought up to believe that food is the way to our loved ones heart what better way to show your love than to make them something special. Restaurants will have long waiting lists and personally I would love to snuggle by the fire with a delicious meal on a cold February day.

 Through the generosity of  Epicure Selections® one lucky winner will win a prize package worth approximately $100 to create your own delicious meal for the special people or person in your life just in time for Valentines' Day. Epicure Selections® is a specialty foods company specializing in herbs, spices and dips to make easy and affordable recipes. It is a British Columbia based company that began with 4 different spice offerings and has grown into a catalogue full of spice and herb blends along with other product offerings designed to make food preparation economical, easy and delicious.

We have all probably noticed the trend to stay at home to eat more often, but we also want ways to make that homecooked meal more enjoyable and easier to prepare when we are in a hurry or can't get to the store for that special something. Whether it is Valentine's Day or any other day, you can celebrate each day with that special someone in your own way! Love really is in the air.

To win this prize package please visit their site at http://www.epicureselections.com/

1- Please leave a comment below and let me know which recipe from their site you would love to prepare for your Valentine?

2- Only one entry per person.

3- Anyone can comment but the contest is open to Canadians only.

4- You have until Wednesday, February 10th, midnight WST to participate.

For your Valentine I am suggesting an entire meal that can be created with what you will recieve if you are the lucky winner. Their Red Pepper Jelly  is made from scratch using Sylvie’s original recipe. It is one of Epicure’s top sellers! This ruby-red blend of ripe red bell peppers, spices, tart vinegar and sugar is perfect to start my suggested Valentine's Day meal with a starter of Epicure's Baked Brie with Red Pepper Jelly which you can bake in the Epicure Red Dip Baker. This adorable red porcelain dish features side handles and fitted “Epicure Selections” embossed lid.

For a second course I suggest  Epicure's Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Zuppa  using their Roasted Red Pepper Dip Mix. Enjoy the rich flavour of roasted red bell peppers without the fuss of roasting. This dip makes a delicious, healthy alternative to plain mayonnaise. Mix gives instant flavour to soups, tomato sauces, rice, omelettes, roast lamb and chicken.

For the main course try the Bruschetta Herbs to prepare Epicure's Bruschetta Chicken . It also makes a great herb seasoning for pasta sauces, seafood and egg dishes.

To accompany the chicken savour Epicure's Spinach Margherita Pasta using the Margherita Sauce Mix which is a light, fresh blend of onion, tomato, leek and herb tomato based favourite . The mix is perfect for pastas, sauces and soups as well.

What is Valentine's Day without a luscious chocolaty dessert!!!!! Dark Belgian Chocolate is considered the world’s best. These easy-melt, bite-sized chocolate buttons make quick, silky chocolate sauces and mouth-watering cookies, cakes and brownies. It would be perfect to prepare Epicure's Poached Pears with Maple Chocolate Sauce. Or how's about a silky Epicure's Tiramisu Parfaits with the Tiramasu Dip Mix. Tiramisu literally means “cheer me up!” Be cheered by this rich blend of chocolate, coffee, cinnamon and vanilla.

Helene of La Cuisine d'Helene says, "I am so impressed with the quality of the Epicure Selections products. I am so glad that we have a Canadian Company that we can be proud of. If you are from Canada and want to try their products go to their website: Epicure Selections. I hope you give them a try and that you shop for Canadian products."

 Epicure Selections® follows a party-plan direct sales model to distribute their ever-expanding product line and is  proud to be 100% Canadian!!! I am proud to support a company that fives back to the community. In 2007, they created the Epicure Foundation™, a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of Canadians through education and poverty relief. Along with the volunteering and fundraising opportunities they offer their Consultants and Home Team Members, The Epicure Foundation™ regularly makes funding and in-kind donations to more than 50 charities nationwide. The Epicure Foundation™ is particularly committed to promoting food security in Canada. They believe that, by assuring adequate physical and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food, all Canadians can enjoy active, healthful lifestyles.

President and Founder Sylvie Rochette has personally donated $10,000 to the Red Cross for Haiti relief and has challenged their Consultants for their home-based businesses to match her donation via the Red Cross, Doctors without Borders and Unicef. Sylvie will match every dollar exceeding a total of $10,000 raised, to a maximum of $25,000.
