2016 New Food Contest Judges

“Catch Nicola Crosbie & Lochlin Cross weekdays from 5:30 – 10 a.m. on 95.7 CRUZ FM – Great Hits & The Best Rock Ever!”

Linda Hoang is obsessed with food. The Digital Strategist (@ Calder Bateman) and Edmonton-based food blogger loves sharing her food adventures and restaurant reviews on her blog and on social media (@lindork). She’s become a trusted source for where and what to eat in our city and loves providing food inspiration to Edmontonians! Linda is also the proud fur-mom to two cats and two dogs.

Allan is Northlands copywriter. He’s the author of over a dozen books on various topics and his loves include movies, food and bow ties. In that order. This is his second time judging the new food contest. Last year he made everyone in his department taste test the Midway’s different mini-donuts.

Rebecca took on the persona of “YEGfoodie” in late 2008. Being a bit of a nerd, social media sharing of food pictures and blogging turned into a passion for restaurants and all things local. Rebecca is a certified Kansas City Barbecue Society judge and recently EAT certified for the Canadian Food Championships. K-Days “new food” has always been an exciting time for Rebecca bringing back memories of childhood carnivals and new adventures.
