Gourmet Heartbeat is pleased to announce the final results of its International Appetizer Contest! Back in June we held our first contest in Ottawa Ontario, where contestants were invited to cook an appetizer from the Gourmet Recipe website. At the event, all guests judged who they thought made the best appetizers and awarded some great prizes that night.
The contest continued into the next several months where a webpage was set up for visitors of Gourmet Recipe to come and vote for their favourite appetizer from the contest. The contestants had their friends and family come to the website and vote for them and the winner would receive the grand prize of $2,000! With an amazing 15,798 votes, Lindsay Beaudoin was the winner! Lindsay made Turkey Meatballs for her entry to the contest, and was well deserving of the final grand prize. To read an interview with our winner and see photos of the final dish, visit our Gourmet Recipe Blog!
Gourmet Heartbeat has started initiative to involve local communities world-wide with the appetizer contests.
The first of these contests was held in Ottawa, Canada. The participants had a lot of fun and innovative ways to present their preparations.
Look at all the recipes from the contest, and vote for your favorite recipe.

Genevieve's post told members of the online forum how she and her husband, Joel Beaudry, came up with the idea of judging hors d'oeuvres created by their diverse group of friends as a way to add "a little touch of magic" to the gray winter months.
Among the hors d'oeuvre offerings, Genevieve, wrote, was a cheese plate presented as a hockey rink with figurines.
Gourmet Heartbeat was looking for stories from our members that connected food, good times, and family and friends.
Genevieve's husband, Joel Beaudry, and Kristina Shaleshanko, shared second place and were each awarded an iPod Touch. Joel's submission recounted the many impromptu picnics he and Genevieve have enjoyed in their relationship, including one instance in which he prepared lobsters he obtained from a local fisherman on the beach with just his pocketknife. Kristina's winning entry told of a one-time visit to a great aunt and uncle when she was 8 years old that left quite an impression.
The third place prize of an iPod Nano was awarded to Margaux Sky. She told Gourmet Heartbeat readers of an eventful 1973 trip to Alaska that included an encounter with a bear and great meals that included salmon and Margaux's version of yes, Baked Alaska. Enjoy your great Apple products, Genevieve, Joel, Kristina and Margaux!
