STELLARTON – Nobody came close to Kevin Cameron in a recent contest put on by Furlani which invited people to share a video of their favourite garlic bread made with Furlani products.

Cameron along with Chef Gilles Godin, his instructor at the Nova Scotia Community College Campus in Stellarton, decided to do a deconstructed lasagna recipe and easily had more votes than his competition to claim the $2,500 prize as Master Chef. The prize money from the contest arrived this week and Godin and Cameron celebrated by making the recipe again.

“The whole process was exciting right from the beginning,” he said.

Cameron said he loves competitions.

“I try to challenge myself all the time. Being 52 years old and going back to school, that was a lot more stressful than anything Furlani could have sent at me,” he said.

Godin said he was proud of Cameron for winning on his first try in a contest like this.

“We hit a home run,” he said. “We want to thank the people of Pictou County for supporting Kevin as well and voting for him. We won by a landslide really.”

Godin said he hopes Furlani will hold the contest again next year so another student from the NSCC can try to repeat the success.

Cameron, who has been part of the cooking program at the community college, will now be doing on-the-job training at Pictou Lodge. What happens after that is still up in the air, but Godin is confident that his future is bright in the field.
