Exciting News for the Burp! Blog

We have some very exciting news to share with all of you!!

Thanks to all of your votes, we've been selected as the first of four finalists in the Family Recipe Revival.  

As part of our prize pack, we'll receive Strauss pasture-raised veal loin chops, three months of free digital cable from Time Warner Cable, a dough cutter and pastry scoop from Wolf and Sub Zero, a Regal Ware baking pan and an Il Mito points card worth $25.

But, THE BEST PART is, our Chocolate Hazelnut Schaum Torte will be featured on the menu at Il Mito Trattoria from Sunday, February 28 through Saturday, March 6. All of the net proceeds from the sale of our dessert will benefit the Hunger Task Force of Milwaukee!

So, here's your excuse to eat more chocolate!  After all, it's for a good cause. 
We'll definitely be swinging over to Il Mito sometime next week... maybe you can join us?  Check in at the Burp! Facebook page for all the details (and become a fan)!

As if all that isn't exciting enough, our recipe will be automatically entered into the Family Recipe Revival Finals, which means we'll be competing with three other recipes (yet to be chosen) at the end of March for the chance to be crowned Family Recipe Revival champion. If our Schaum Torte recipe wins the popular vote, it will be featured on the Il Mito menu for an entire year!  Again, the net proceeds of the torte would benefit Hunger Task Force.

Voting on the final four recipes begins Monday, March 22 and runs through Sunday, March 28 -- so we'll be rallying the troops again for another round of voting later on in March.

In the meantime, thanks for all the support!
And we hope to run into you over at Il Mito Trattoria!

Of course, if you're not in the area, you could always make one up for yourself!
