Update: Congrats to Paula, the winner of two tickets to the New England Dairy Cook-off and a night's stay at the Portland Regency Hotel & Spa. Not surprisingly, her favorite dairy product is butter. And thank you all for participating!
The 3rd Annual New England Dairy Cook-off is coming up! Held at Ocean Gateway Terminal in Portland on November 6th, 2011, one home cook stands to win $10,000 in the contest. If you have an original recipe that uses a dairy product, make it a Hood one, and submit your recipe here. Recipes entries are due September 12th; visit www.HoodCookOff.com for more details on how to enter.
Past winners include Katherine Stetson of Bath, NH with her Apple Butter Aebleskivers with Maple Chantilly (Um, Google Image search Aebleskivers and you'll see why she won, yum) and Laurie Lufkin of Essex, MA with New England Buttermilk Pumpkin Cakes with Sour Cream Apple Caramel and Dried Cranberries. This year is Maine's year!
If you aren't the type to make up your own recipes, you can still attend the event by entering to win two tickets to the event. The kind folks at Hood Dairy are giving away two tickets to the event and a one night stay at the Portland Regency Hotel & Spa on November 5th, 2011.
Simply comment on this post with your favorite dairy product (mine: cheese, duh), and I will randomly select one winner on Saturday, September 10th. Entries close on Friday, September 9th at 12am EST. This sweepstakes is open only to those over 18 and legal residents of the United States.
