Southwind Farms Launching Fingerlicious Recipe Contest
HEYBURN, ID - Southwind Farms is launching a new recipe contest for foodservice professionals centered around its delicious line of fingerling potatoes. This appropriately named Fingerlicious recipe contest calls on chefs and staff in the foodservice industry who are currently employed in restaurants (independent or chain), colleges/universities, contract operations, hotels/resorts, casinos, cruise lines, supermarket prepared foods sections, or as culinary educators, to come up with their most creative, best tasting dish using Southwind Farms' fingerling potatoes. Whether it's Thanksgiving, Valentine’s Day or a birthday party event, the company says it is looking for a “special” recipe creation worthy of being celebrated.
With a grand prize of a three-day Idaho culinary experience, including travel and lodging, a professionally produced video and $1,000 cash (a $6,000 value), this contest is sure to attract a good deal of attention from consumers. Southwind Farms also shares that it will be offering additional cash prizes ranging from $100 to $1,000 through this contest. In addition, buyers who refer one of the top three winning entries will be eligible to win a cash prize up to $500!
All recipes will be judged based on presentation, flavor and originality, according to a press release. The natural flavor profile and aesthetic appearance of these potatoes are ideally suited to these categories. Southwind Farms promotes its fingerling potatoes as an ideal addition to any dish to add eye appeal, the flavor diners crave, and a fun, festive feel.
The Fingerlicious recipe contest opens November 1, 2014, and closes on March 31, 2015. Winners will be announced April 30, 2015. For full contest rules, make sure to check out Southwind's website for all the details.
