The winner of our Food Festival competition was Eleanor Edgar. Unfortunately, Eleanor couldn't make it. We therefore drew another name and Chris Davis and a guest will be coming along in Eleanor's place.
Birmingham Food Fest is on its way and, to celebrate, we have the perfect competition on offer for foodies. Our winners will stay overnight with us in the city on July 12th and enjoy a unique culinary event featuring top Chicago chef Dirk Flanigan.
We're offering a stay for two in one of our 5* Clubman apartments at the top of the Rotunda. Our winners will also enjoy a five-course meal with wine at Opus restaurant, as part of the Colmore Business District Food Festival. And this is a very special evening - one of America's rising culinary stars, Dirk Flanigan, will cook alongside Opus' chef-director, David Colcolme.
We are hosting Chef Flanigan for a week to show our support for the festival. Gavin Burns, our Head of Marketing, said, "Dirk should feel right at home here - all of our apartments have fully-equipped Poggenpohl kitchens and we provide cooking basics such as balsamic vinegar and olive oil. He'll be able to whip himself something up in no time."
Our competition will launch tonight at 8pm and entries will close on June 29th, 2012. You can enter via Staying Cool'sFacebook page or email email@example.com using the title 'Food Fest Comp' and your name will be popped in our virtual bag.
