Calgary – With the help of 10 celebrity food judges, the Best New Food on the Midway in the Savoury and Sweet category were determined, with International Perogies’s Teriyaki Chicken Perogies and Deep Fried Coffee’s Salted Caramel Deep Fried Coffee winning their respective category.

The Teriyaki Chicken Perogies wowed the judges and claimed a dominant victory. Bite size cheese cheddar and potato perogies are lightly pan fried with butter and given the Teriyaki twist. Garnished with sautéed onions, sriracha mayonnaise, sweet ginger teriyaki sauce, green onions and crispy chicken breast strips, then topped off with seaweed. If Teriyaki isn’t your thing there are five other international flavours to choose from.

In the sweet category, it was a close win for Deep Fried Coffee’s new delicacy. Fresh hot deep fried coffee treats drizzled in caramel and Himalayan sea salt. Perfect for your salty, sweet cravings! Five different flavours to get your morning fix.

Both were presented with the Best New Midway Food plate to display for the duration of Stampede.

The judging panel was made up of Hunter Shinkaruk (Calgary Flames), Connor Rankin (Calgary Hitmen), Mookie Wilson (KISS 95.9), Kodette LaBarbera (TV’s Hockey Wives), Rebbeca Johnston (Calgary Inferno), David Ford (Former Olympic kayaker), Kelly Vanderbeek (Former Olympic ski racer), Jan Hansen (Executive Chef, Hotel Arts) and Kim Hayden (Kim’s Kitchen).

You can find these tasty treats on the Midway at Stampede Park July 8-17. For a full list of the 43 new foods, visit: To find new foods at the Calgary Stampede, download the official app. Follow along with ‘best of’ food categories contests all week by using #csfoodie on Twitter and Instagram.
