Prêmio Paladar 2011 - You can be one of the judges!

Paladar 2010: Best dish of duck, Le Jazz restaurant

If you live in São Paulo and want to be one of the judges of the Prêmio Paladar, organized by the newspaper Estadão, and if you want to have meals in the best restaurants of Sao Paulo with expenses paid by the newspaper, you can be part of this contest.

It's easy! You just have to write a quick review (8 to 10 lines maximum) about a dish you have eaten recently. And put as a comment on their blog's post (click to access).

The authors of the best comments will be selected for an interview, after which will be the final selections will be made. The interviewers will consider the candidates' appetites for food and knowledge, and how their passion for food is expressed. Remember to stick to critiques of the food and your dish, and not of the restaurant in general.

Paladar 2011: Maní restaurant winner
of Fish and Seafood contest
Insidesaopaulo has talked to the organizers, and the text can be written in english if you wish, but it's important to be living in São Paulo and to be available to visit restaurants in town. The winners of the contest will be announced in December.

Since the Prêmio Paladar doesn't consider any votes based on memory alone, the selected judges will have to taste and experience all the items competing for the 2011 award in different categories.

They must visit the restaurant as ordinary customers, without identifying themselves. They must order, pay the bill, and write a review. That's undoubtedly an intense and secret task - but definitely an awesome one. 

  • Each contestant may send only a single review including a valid e-mail (which will not be revealed). The contest is already running and ends on September 18th, at 11:59 pm.
  • The applicant must live in São Paulo and be available during the contest. The participation is voluntary (it's not paid). No refund is available for extra expenses.
  • Cuisine chefs and restaurant staff are not allowed to participate.
  • The identity of the judges in 2011 will not be revealed to the readers until the award celebration.
You can be part of it!
