Now in its 12th year, the Louisiana Sweet Potato Commission is sponsoring a recipe contest in partnership with Louisiana Cookin’ magazine. Over 1,000 recipes are submitted and your recipe could earn you a cash prize and a feature in Louisiana Cookin’ magazine.
The Louisiana Restaurant Association is also a sponsor and encourages professional chefs and home cooks to submit their most delicious recipe for an appetizers, side dish, entrée or desserts. An overall grand prize winner will be selected and will win $1,000! To top it off, each category winner will receive $500.
The five categories for entries include: fresh, canned, frozen, professionals and students. Deadline to submit your recipe(s) is June 1, 2015. If you enter more than one recipe, you need to complete a separate entry for each recipe.
Prize winners will be determined based on overall flavor, visual appeal and creativity. Finalists’ recipes will be prepared by culinary students at Louisiana Culinary Institute in Baton Rouge and judged by an independent panel of food industry professional whose decisions are final.
