Calling all Chow-chefs and Chow-shoppers!
What would be a picnic without contests and prizes? And what would a Chowhound picnic be without the opportunity to debate which dishes are the more "delectable," "lip-smacking," "worthy of a long drive," or, the highest of all accolades, "hyper-delicious?"
So that the Chowhound Picnic will be all that and more, we're having a Food Contest.
There will be a prize in each of six categories (appetizers, vegetables, entrees, salads, breads, desserts): "Weber's Ultimate Barbecue Book" (donated by Simon Majumdar). And a grand prize: a gift certificate for K&L Wines (donated by Howler). (Many thanks to our generous London Chowhound donors!)
So, whether you whip up your auntie's special recipe or pick up that special dish from your favorite eatery/bakery/deli, know that all will delight in not only what you've brought but also in the Chowhound spirit of sharing!
On your forks, get set, CHOW!
We'll soon be posting more details about preparing your entry, so stay tuned. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact either Ruth (firstname.lastname@example.org) or me. And, of course, keep doing the difficult(wink) research of tasting all the dishes you might consider for your entry. Better go, I think it's lunchtime...
