Tourism Estevan is building on culinary experiences for the community with the addition of a new initiative, Culinary Months.
Four times throughout the year, restaurants in the community will be competing for different categories.
The first event Pizza Month runs all of February, bringing innovative and traditional pizzas to many local restaurants and eateries. Eight unique pizzas, 28 days to try them all.
Rebecca Westling, destination marketing and communications consultant for the City of Estevan, said: “Culinary tourism is about the unique, authentic experience of restaurants in our city. We have amazing chefs that create items we all love; now is the time to try something new and show these restaurants our support.”
The program kicked off Feb. 1. Participants will purchase a $15 featured item from participating restaurants where they will be given a ballot code to vote for their favourite. There are three categories to choose from: best crust, best overall and most unique.
At month’s end, one random voter will be chosen to win a $500 gift certificate to Shop Estevan, and the three winning restaurants in each category will win $200 dollars to donate to their charity of choice.
The Pizza Month participating restaurants are Domino’s Pizza, Fired Up Grill, Humpty’s Family Restaurant, Michael’s Coffee Shop & Bakery, Pinocchio Pizza, Red Swan Pizza, The Black Grasshopper and the Tower Café
