Arlington Heights, IL (PRWEB) August 17, 2006
If anyone has a recipe that tastes delicious and expresses their family heritage or special memory, now is the time for them to try turning that treasured dish into cash. The Chefs.com Treasured Recipes Contest gives the perfect avenue to share special recipe remembrances and possibly win our $10,000 grand prize.
This recipe contest is unique, because a well-crafted story about the significance of each recipe is as important as the recipe itself in determining winners. When submitting a recipe, be sure to submit a story about the special meaning associated with it.
- Is it the naan bread recipe that’s been passed down through your family for generations? Share your memories.
- Describe what makes your recipe truly authentic.
- How has your family brought different traditions together for a new expression in this special dish?
“We expect to receive recipes from home cooks who are from all walks of life, from all ethnicities,” said Ken Rubin, the Editor-in-Chief of Chefs.com. “We are eager to hear the stories that are associated with these recipes, because together tell the history of our nation.”
Cooks can enter online or get information about entering by mail by visiting http://treasuredrecipes.chefs.com. Entry deadline is November 8, 2006.
