Big Recipe Contest - Taste of Something Better
The folks at LG Electronics along with one of my favorite cooking magazines, Bon Appétit are looking for "foodies, gourmands and gastronomes" to enter their Taste of Something Better recipe contest and cooking competition. They are looking for "original recipes" from "amateur chefs across the nation, challenging top entrants to a cook-off in the LG kitchen at the highly anticipated Bon Appétit Supper Club & Café® in New York City this September."
The competition is open to all "home chefs and cooking enthusiasts" but professional chefs are not allowed to enter. You are asked to submit your favorite "entree recipe for a chance to demonstrate (your) culinary chops first-hand in a national cook-off event." The top three recipe finalists will be selected by renowned chefs and food critics and get the chance to participate in the LG "Taste of Something Better" competition in New York City.
"Some of the best culinary innovations were born out of the home kitchen, and we would like to recognize and give amateur chefs the opportunity to share their masterpieces with the world," said Peter Reiner, senior vice president, marketing and strategy, LG Electronics USA. "LG strives to make everyone feel like a talented chef by providing them with the tools to cook up something better in the kitchen, including our a new line of gas cook tops, built-in wall ovens and ranges, all blending powerful performance and sleek, contemporary design."
The competitors in the New York City event will have a chance to represent the United States in LG's global "Life Tastes Good" cooking competition taking place in Bangkok, Thailand in November. The top three competitors can win
- Grand prize: Trip for two to Thailand to compete in LG's global cooking competition, a premium LG kitchen package, including gas cooktop, double wall oven, 4-door French-door refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave oven, along with $1,000 to enjoy while in New York for the competition.
