I came across this forum and wanted to let the members know about a $10,000 recipe contest we just launched at Chefs.com.
Full contest info is here: http://treasuredrecipes.chefs.com
Here's a little summary if you don't feel like visiting the site:
"Treasured Recipes Contest” is your chance to share a family recipe and win a $10,000 grand prize.
If you’ve got a recipe that tastes delicious and expresses your family, culture, tradition, or heritage, now is the time to try turning that family favorite into cash. You have until November 8th, 2006 to enter the contest. When you submit your recipe, you will submit a story about what the recipe means to you. "
"From all of the entries, Chefs.com judges will select the 100 semi-finalists, who will have their recipes posted on http://treasuredrecipes.chefs.com. From November 15, 2006 to January 27, 2007 Chefs.com members will vote on their favorites from the 100 semi-finalists. The 5 finalists from the voting results will be flown to San Francisco, California, for a cook-off to determine the grand prize winner. All 5 finalists win a set of Hamilton Beach Eclectrics™ All-Metal Appliances, including a toaster, stand mixer, coffee maker, drink mixer, and blender (approximate retail value $500)."
Thanks, and good luck if you decide to enter!
