Gibsons woman has serious kitchen mojo

A tasty treat whipped up by a home cook from Gibsons is hitting store shelves.

Elisa Hendricks has been competing on the TV show Recipe to Riches… where cooks get a chance to have their favourite recipe turned into a President’s Choice product.

Hendricks’ Italian Lollipops, a concoction of cheese, sausage and herbs, deep fried in a crispy coating and served on a stick, took top prize for appetizers.  They go on sale March 22nd.

She says it was a lot of fun being on the show, and getting a chance to prepare a recipe that has special meaning.  The cheese, Friulano, is from Italy’s Friuli region where her father grew up.

And it turns out Hendricks isn’t the only TV chef with a local connection.

Ruth Wigman, who’s originally from Nanaimo, has been competing on Top Chef.  Unfortunately she got cut this week.

These days Wigman is a chef in St. John’s Newfoundland.
