We ♥ Local Food Recipe Contest

We Heart Local Cornmeal

We’re all about celebrating local cornmeal this winter, and what better way than to challenge you to a local cornmeal recipe contest?  Did you know, cornmeal can be used for so much more than just cornbread? Get creative (experiment with savory and sweet!) and you could win fabulous prizes! Enter your recipe between January 30 – February 12 for your chance to win.  The top 3 recipes will be sampled and voted on by the public in the store on Friday, February 24 and at the Burlington Winter Farmers’ Market on Saturday, February 25.

The Contest

Sometime between January 30 and February 12, enter your recipe information online (see below for the fine print) or by dropping off a copy at the Customer Service Desk. Recipes can be either sweet or savory. The only requirements are that local cornmeal plays a significant role in your recipe.
