Vancouver Foodster presents the Flatbread Challenge

After a successful Taco challenge comes our Flatbread Challenge featuring 7 restaurants in Vancouver, that runs from June 4 – 26, 2014. The interpretation of flatbread takes on different meanings in many cultures and you will find several variations in the flatbread creations the chefs have entered into this challenge.
Participating restaurants are showcasing Flatbread creations that were created just for this challenge and all will be offered in all of these restaurants during the challenge period .

For our Challenges, we have 2 sets of winners. The People’s Choice winners will be selected by the public who are invited to visit any of the participating restaurants and order the Flatbread creations and then decide on which ones they think are worthy of winning the challenge by casting their votes.

For this challenge we have 4 media judges and they are:
