Crazy Fries Challenge Winners

The Vancouver Foodster Crazy Fries Challenge was a success featuring unique creations at restaurants around Vancouver.  Each restaurant featured their creation on their menu from February 7 – March 3, 2019. and their customers voted for their favourites daily throughout the challenge.

Our media judging panel determined the ultimate winners of the challenge, and this was quite the task as each judge who tasted each creation with a rigorous process based on taste, originality/uniqueness and presentation/appearance.

Our Media judges for this challenge were: Deanna Woo, Josh Boettcher and Tara Lee

Each media judge will have scored the creation with a maximum of 40 points as follows: Overall Taste 20 points, Originality and Uniqueness 10 points, Presentation and Appearance 10 points). The total number of points a sandwich creation could earn is 120 points.
