Diva Q's 180

I thought I would share an email I received Cc to me from one of the judges who scored Diva's 180 Non-Dessert catigory. I hope you dont mind Diva but its great.

Quote:
Diva Q,

Great job at the "Que and Cruz" and your award. You really set the standard for the "Anything Butt" competition that night. As the Team Captain, I was the one dragging people away from your tent so we could make it to the next entry on time. I also told the judges to keep their comments to their selves until the completion of the circuit.

When I walked back to the judging tent, Bill & John were waiting for my reaction to the Friday night. I got to let loose at that point, and they were all smiles after my description. In short, you "nailed it" The presentation, quality, and food to fit the night, were perfect. As a former Chef, I was blown away and hope you can pass some of that expertise on to those that you teach. They (Master judges) told us to be prepared for a great evening, and your team (and others) came through.

Best wishes in your next competitions, and hope to see you in Louisa next year!

John H.

Way to go Diva. If it's not a secret being saved for a future comp, what did you dazzle them with?

Well thanks guys.

That was pretty cool to get that email. I don't plan on sharing that recipe any time soon. Infact I am in Saskatoon Saskatchewan this weekend just flew in for a comp here and they have an anything butt category. I am going to try it up here to see if it goes over as well.

We contacted KCBS and they will be sending another 180 pin. We now have two. One for a dessert we did and now this one. Thats really cool to us.

Congrats on the newest 180 in your team's collection, Danielle.

You're well on your way! Too bad Jeff is no longer at Liason - now the rest of us are unable to attend his class and learn the techniques. Guess we'll just have to stay with what we know, and try to catch you! LOL.

Have a great time in Saskatchewan, and good thoughts for the same success!
