Leamington is calling all kitchen crafters and creative cooks! They are running a contest to find the best recipes using Leamington�s local ingredients. Put your best spoon forward and create an original and delicious dish!
The contest is split up in four categories: Del Fresco�s Sweet Rainbow Peppers, Lakeside Produce Tomatoes, Made in Leamington Strawberries and Caught Onthe42 Fish.
What if a great idea just popped up in your head, but it doesn�t fit in any of these categories? Don�t worry, you can take any Leamington grown ingredient – from land to lake � and take part in the Libro Credit Union�s Budget Bites challenge!
Put all you have on the table because the recipes will be judged on creativity, use of local ingredients and flavour! The finalists who passed the first round, will present their creations to local chefs, food experts and Food Network�s award-winning Chef Lynn Crawford at the three-day festival Sip & Savour Experience. You might know Chef Crawford from her cookbook or regular appearances on Iron Chef America, Chopped Canada, Top Chef Master Series Season Five, Restaurant Makeover and Top Chef Canada.
What�s in it for you?
Fame, fame and more fame! First place winners in each category will have the chance to meet Chef Crawford at this year�s Sip & Savour VIP Signature Experience. Selected recipes will also be featured in the soon-to-be published Sip & Savour Recipe collection featuring #madeinleamington ingredients.
Does this sound like something for you? Sign up here and take your chance to gain eternal fame!
The deadline for recipe submissions is July 7, 2017 at 11:59 PM. Once finalists are chosen, an online poll will open to the public to view and vote for the People�s Choice award.
