Grand Prize Wins Culinary Institute Retreat

It’s a perfect opportunity for consumers to tap their culinary creative juices, show off their cooking skills using Del Monte® fresh produce, and share healthy new recipes.

Del Monte Fresh Produce N.A., Inc. (Del Monte) believes there’s a “chef” in all of us. Del Monte announced today, it will hold a national search beginning April 15 for an aspiring chef. The contest, “Find Your Inner Chef,” encourages consumers to participate in a fun and fresh culinary experience, using their own favorite recipe or by creating a new recipe using Del Monte® fresh fruits and vegetables.

“Del Monte knows that several of our consumers are chefs in their own right, serving up delicious nutritious meals for their families and friends,” said Dennis Christou, VP of Marketing, North America for Del Monte. “So, we created this contest specifically with them in mind. It’s a perfect opportunity for consumers to tap their culinary creative juices, show off their cooking skills using Del Monte® fresh produce, and share healthy new recipes. We are more than excited to meet our very first Del Monte Fresh Chef.”

Before participants make a dash to the kitchen, they must first enter for a chance to win. To enter, consumers must first “like” and then complete the pop up registration form on the Del Monte Fresh Produce Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/DelMonteFreshProduce. After completing the registration form, they can then post a copy of their original healthy recipe utilizing Del Monte® fresh produce on the Facebook page. Photo submissions are also encouraged but not necessary. Consumers will be eligible to win daily prizes including gift cards, culinary kitchen tools, and tabletop appliances. Four finalists will be selected, one each week for four weeks based on the number of “likes” for their posted recipe.
