On his blog, Michael Hauschild describes the Road to Luxembourg, AKA his culinary journey, to represent Canada abroad. Passionate about all things culinary, his training has been particularly intense since he was selected a year ago to compete on Canada’s Youth Culinary Team in Luxembourg later this month.
In Canada (and many other countries too) we are all aware of a World Cup for hockey, skiing, curling and many other sports. I’d be willing to bet though that most people, myself included, are probably not aware of a World Cup competition for culinary skills. If you aren’t or even if you already were, check out the team’s Facebook page for more details.
I heard about this event from Michael’s (very proud) grandmother, one of my gardening clients, whom I also know from my days as a hockey manager. Michael, you see, is one of my son’s hockey teammates that nicknamed me Lorieb many years ago. Obviously his biological family is very proud of him as is his (very large) hockey family.
We and the rest of Canada are rooting for you Michael and your new team. As Luxembourg’s primary language is French, I will end with Bonne Chance!
