When I heard about Panera Bread's "Breaducation" competition, I immediately though of two of the best home cooks I know -- my husband and my brother. Both of them are just regular guys (and busy dads) with full-time jobs, but they love to cook for their families when they have the time. And I am lucky to be able to enjoy the fruits of their labor (so yummy).
Although they do most of their cooking at home, both my husband and my brother have expressed a desire to take their cooking to the next level -- and "Breaducation" could be their chance.
The "Breaducation" challenge offers bread-lovers a one-of-a-kind cook-off competition that could make their culinary dreams come true. Throughout the month of August, Chicago-area home cooks can visit their nearest Panera Bread or visit www.panerabread.com/
The top three contestants will compete on Saturday, October 1st at Le Cordon Bleu where they will create recipes incorporating french baguettes into a decadent dish. Panera Bread head chef Tom Gumpel and “Chef'testant" Tiffany Derry from Bravo's Top Chef will be among a panel of judges choosing the winning dish. The Breaducation winner will receive a grand prize package from from Panera Bread and Le Cordon Bleu to kickstart their personal culinary dreams.
