If you like the show Cupcake Wars from the Food Network as much as we do, then you will love this next story. One of our local popular restaurants, Crady’s Eclectic Cuisine on Main in downtown, historic Conway, SC has advanced to the second round of the national US Foods’ Next Top Product Competition! Barbara Crady Whitley’s famous fresh peach cupcake with apple butter cream frosting recipe has been nominated. Out of 250,000 chefs, Whitley was the only one chosen in the entire state of South Carolina. Wow!
Crady’s will win a $20,000 kitchen remodel if their recipe wins the overall competition. The three chefs with the highest number of votes will prepare their dishes at the US Foods Fall Food Lover’s Forum in Chicago in September. The winning recipe will debut in March of 2013 as a Chef’s Line product.
Let’s show them some good old fashioned love and vote for our local celebrity. People can vote once a day for the famous dessert on the US Food’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/usfoods. Starting Friday, August 31, every vote will count for 10 points. There are three categories: appetizers, main dishes and desserts. Barbara’s cupcakes appear within the dessert section. Voting ends September 7, 2012.
“A new kitchen would be perfect,” said Whitley. “It is much needed and comes at a time when we are rebranding our restaurant. This would be a dream come true. We are hoping that everyone will vote for us. This not only puts us in the recipe books, but pays homage to Conway, to the Grand Strand, and to the entire state of South Carolina,” she continued.
So Grand Strand, let’s help put Crady’s on the map!!!
