Contest Details


Canadian Lentils & Chef Michael Smith are excited to present the Lentil Hunter contest as part of Love Your Lentils Month this May! Chef Michael Smith has searched the globe and found some of the worlds best lentil recipes, and we want to invite you along for the journey by watching our brand new websiodes at

The Lentil Gnome

While you are watching each episode be sure to be on the lookout for our Mini-Chef who travelled the globe by Michael’s side.  

Once you have watched all five webisodes head over to our contest page and tell us where Mini-Chef made his guest-star appearance in each webisode for a chance to win a trip to PEI, Canada from July 4th to 7th, 2014 where you will get to spend time with Chef Michael Smith and take in the Islands Annual Village Feast event!
