Foodbuzz has just announced this amazing San Pellegrino Almost Famous Chef Regional Competition Finals People’s Choice Awards in Napa Valley on March 7th.  How exciting is that? I would love the opportunity to travel across the country to Napa Vally (a place I truly love…not only for the beautiful wineries, the fabulous people and the amazing food), but for the opportunity to attend this fascinating foodie event…this is truly a dream come true for me.

This event will feature top chefs and food editors from top epicurean media channels such as the Today Show and Food & Wine Magazine to watch finalists from 11 regions around the world compete for the People’s Choice award.  What a dream!

I love San Pellegrino…the bubbly, crisp taste that excites my taste buds every time I take a sip…it’s the perfect afternoon refreshment and my evening ‘sparkler’ mixed with organic cranberry juice and a fresh lime wedge…

Attending this event would be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity as I would love to meet these food editors and watch the incredibly talented 11 finalists compete for the grand prize right in the heart of Napa Valley.

Blogging live from Nappa, surrounded by culinary talent and enjoying the incredible ‘culinary’ company…now that’s what I call an amazing experience.

In the spirit of the San Pellegrino Almost Famous Event, I’ve created a spectacular relish this evening, using my San Pellegrino.  Enjoy this tasty dish and keep those fingers crossed as I’d love to jet to Napa for this exciting competition!

Gingered Cranberry-Orange Relish


This is a wonderful dish to serve alongside roasted turkey, grilled fish or roasted root vegetables.  It seems no matter what you pair with this relish, the taste is always exquisite.  I often use leftovers on my turkey sandwich and salad the next day as the relish is a perfect accompaniment to bean casseroles, baked tofu, poultry, fish, crackers, toast and pitas.

Ingredients

  • 2 large oranges, unpeeled and slice into 8 pieces for each orange
  • 1 grapefruit, unpeeled and sliced into 8 pieces
  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • ¼ cup stevia
  • 2 tsp. honey or agave nectar
  • ¼ tsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ cup crystallized ginger, chopped
  • 1 tsp. white balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. San Pellegrino

Directions

  • Place orange and grapefruit pieces (skin-on) in a food processor. Pulse until coarsely chopped.
  • Slowly add cranberries, stevia, honey, cinnamon, ginger, balsamic vinegar and San Pellegrino; pulse until coarsely chopped.
  • Transfer relish to a small bowl and chill before serving.
  • Enjoy!

I was lost, searching for answers and alone for 10 years until I learned how to get my body working for me, not against me—to address the underlying symptoms instead of using a Band-aid approach to reclaim my vitality. I want to show you that eating and living clean feels incredible. Once you see life this way, you’ll never go back. Ever. Come play along with me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter.
