June is National Dairy Month® and in celebration, HP Hood® launched their third annual, Hood New England Dairy Cook-off. The recipe contest, presented by Hood Sour Cream, is open to all amateur cooks from the six New England states – Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. The grand prize winner will be awarded $10,000 and be featured in the 2011 New England Dairy Cook-Off recipe book. Recipe submissions are now being accepted at www.HoodCookOff.com until September 12.
Original Recipe Using Hood Products
Submitted recipes must be original and include at least one of the following Hood products: Hood Milk, Hood Simply Smart®, Hood Cream, Hood Sour Cream, Hood Cottage Cheese, Hood Country Creamer®, Hood EggNog and Hood Calorie Countdown®. Cooks can submit their original recipe, featuring one or more eligible Hood dairy products. Recipes will be divided into five categories including: breakfast/brunch; soups/chowders; appetizers/side dishes; lunch/dinner (entree); and dessert.
Last year, Laurie Lufkin of Essex, MA made it all the way to the finals, where she won the $10,000 Grand Prize with her New England Buttermilk Pumpkin Cakes with Sour Cream Apple Caramel and Dried Cranberries.
