Tourism Richmond names three Richmond Foodie Blogger finalists

Lindsay Anderson, Kelly Brisson and Melanie Hillier are the three finalists for Tourism Richmond’s Richmond Foodie Blogger position.

Anderson was picked by voters and Brisson and Hillier were selected by Tourism Richmond. They were picked from a list of 12 finalists.

Anderson is a Vancouver food blogger who writes at www.linds-eats.blogspot.ca.

Brisson is from Ottawa and writes the The Gouda Life.

Hillier is from Toronto and her blog is Dulcet Devotion.

The three candidates will be interviewed by a Tourism Richmond panel over the coming month. The winner is expected to be announced by the end of May.

The contest is part of Tourism Richmond’s 365 Days of Dining campaign. In February, Tourism Richmond put out the call for a food blogger who would be willing to eat at one Richmond restaurant a day for an entire year. The job pays $50,000.
