All of the recipes are in! Thirty semifinalists will compete in the 2012 Hood® New England Dairy Cook-Off® to determine the best original recipe in New England featuring a Hood product. These semi-finalists will be announced on October 9th.
What is the grand prize you ask? A whopping $10,000!
And just what is a cook-off like?
It was just like being in Hell’s Kitchen! I’m kidding of course. But truth-be-told, it was exciting to see the semi-finalists whipping up their original recipes using Hood Products at last year’s Hood New England Dairy Cook-Off. That’s why Hood wants you to share in the excitement with this next giveaway. One lucky Moms Own Words reader will win two tickets to attend the Hood Cook-Off held in Providence, Rhode Island, at the Rhode Island Convention Center on (Oct. 21) and hotel accommodations for the night before (Oct. 20) at the Providence Marriott Downtown.
Hosted again by TV Diner’s Billy Costa, the 2012 Cook-Off promises to be another exciting event. Top that with a one night’s stay at the Wyndham Gardner Hotel in Providence, Rhode Island! WHAT A GIVEAWAY!
