[Make it!] Key Lime Pie & A Taste of the Florida Keys


I like to eat food, and occasionally I like to make food, but I wouldn’t call myself a chef. When I had the chance to participate in a one of a kind cook off challenge, I couldn’t turn it down!


Florida Keys Chef Bobby Stoky flew into Toronto to whip several food bloggers, recipe writers and influences into shape in a fun cook-off. We didn’t know what we would be cooking, but I had a hunch on dessert that proved to be correct! We created two dishes, Onion-Encrusted Yellowtail with Mango Salsa and Key Lime Pie.

It was an exhilarating race to beat the time crunch and create the best dish. We all had the same recipe, but were invited to add our own flair to the dish. We worked together in teams, but it was every chef for themselves! The fresh Yellowtail Snapper was flown in just for our event. It doesn’t get any fresher than that. Our dishes were taste tested by Chef Stoky, and one winner won a trip to the Florida Keys! Check out the video below for a taste of the action!

I never thought that I would enjoy a Key Lime Pie as much as I did. The recipe was flawless, and produced an amazing pie that impressed my family, who couldn’t stop eating it! It’s super simple and fast to make. Here’s the recipe!
