‘Tis the season for traditions and Trump International Beach Resort wants to hear (and taste) yours! Just in time for the holidays, the resort is kicking off its first ever Trump International Beach Resort Holiday Recipe Contest by asking creative cooks, bakers and spatula-lickers to submit their favorite original recipes at for the chance to win the ultimate grand prize: a six day, five night escape to Trump International Beach Resort in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida.

"Traditions play an important role in our brand culture, for both our guests and employees. We are always striving to create memorable experiences for anyone who steps foot into our resort, whether on their first or 10th stay with us, we want to spark excitement within each guest by giving them something to look forward to," said Linda Geyer, General Manager at Trump International Beach Resort. "With the holidays approaching, what a fantastic way to spread cheer and share traditions with others by hosting a holiday recipe contest!"

Starting October 21, 2013 through November 15th, 2013, participants can submit their original holiday recipes in one of the following seven categories: appetizers, salads, entrées, side dishes, holiday breads, beverages, and desserts. All entries will be taste-tested and reviewed by a panel of culinary experts, including Trump International Beach Resort’s Executive Chef Kurtis Jantz. Twenty-five category winners will receive one "Kitchen Essentials" utensil set, a Trump International Beach Resort Holiday Recipe Book highlighting all of the winning recipes and will be featured at the Trump International Beach Resort’s Holiday Brunch on December 25th, 2013. The grand prize winner will be chosen by guests who attend the brunch, as well as a team of culinarians, who will vote for their favorite recipe. The winner will be announced on January 4, 2014.

"Each of my creations comes from a culture or tradition that has influenced and strengthened my culinary abilities," said Executive Chef Kurtiz Jantz. "My team and I understand the importance of sharing these and we are extremely excited to see (and taste) what our guests and fans enjoy during the holidays."

In addition to the six day, five night escape to Trump International Beach Resort, the grand prize winner will receive deluxe ocean view accommodations, $1,000 airfare credit, transportation to and from the airport, a one-on-one cooking demonstration with Executive Chef Kurtis Jantz and much more!

Guests who attend Trump International Beach Resort’s Holiday Brunch will not only get to help choose a winner, but they also will be supporting an amazing local cause! The resort will donate 15% of the brunch’s proceeds to support Feeding South Florida, the local Feeding America food bank whose mission is to end hunger in South Florida.
