Local Woman Named Finalist In Sandwich Competition

A woman from Rothesay has been named a finalist for Canada's Best Sandwich Contest. 

Ashley Seeley is one of four people who will compete for the title this Thursday in front of a judging panel led by Food Network Canada personality Bob Blumer. Seeley will be making a spicy berbere steak sandwich with fresh cheese and lemon vinaigrette salad on sourdough.

She tells CHSJ News the sandwich was inspired by Ethiopian cuisine, which she discovered while she was in university in Halifax.

If Seeley wins the title, she gets $10,000 for her and $10,000 for the charity of her choice, which is L'Arche Cape Breton. For more information on the contest, click here.
