Semi Finals in The Nordic Hot Dog Championship

So now it’s over, the semi finals of the Nordic Hot Dog Championship.
Me and four other food bloggers from Norway had to fight to take home the first place at Brooklyn Brewerys summer party at Uhørt in Oslo. The winner got to take a friend with him/her to New York City where he/she will represent Norway in the finals of the Nordic Hot Dog Championship. At the championship the winner will compete against another amateur cook representing Sweden and 6 professional chefs. This will take place at Brooklyn Brewery in Brooklyn at the North – Nordic Food Festival together with Honest Cooking.

The Event in Oslo was very nice and fun. Good music, great beer and very good atmosphere. We got 3 barbeques that we could use for prepping our different hot dogs. (Read about my hot dog here.)

And we then had to present our hot dogs in front of the crowd and three judges:

Ole Martin Alfsen, chef, writer
Erik Sørensen, sausage maker Strøm Larsen
Sigrid Strætkvern, writer and beer-guru

They tasted and tasted and finally came to a conclusion. They had decided on a second and a first place. On second place came Karine with her homemade sausages with nordic influences and on first place came… drum roll…. me! I couldn’t believe it , de other sausages was so good so this was very unexpected. But now Iäm going to take my boyfriend with me and go to NYC and defend Norways honor against Sweden in The Nordic Hot Dog Championship!
