In the spirit of sharing delicious Argentine recipes (and a bit of friendly competition), I'm pleased to announce that I'm now accepting submissions for the 2012 Seashells and Sunflowers Argentine Recipe Contest! Perhaps your recipes are scribbled on napkins or tucked away in the pages of a yellowed, dog-eared cookbook. Or maybe the only place they're noted is in the recesses of your mind. No matter where your favorite Argentine recipes are found, I'd like to see them!
Last year, our three participants wowed us with their submissions:
In the end, Aledys Ver of From Argentina to The Netherlands, For Love! emerged victorious with her recipe for bread pudding. If you think you've got what it takes to come out on top, read on for more information!
The 2012 Seashells and Sunflowers Argentine Recipe Contest
Send me your best Argentine recipe, whether it's an old family favorite or a more recent culinary triumph. I'll announce my top three picks, and then I'll prepare all three recipes, along with a brief description and photos. At that point it's up to you, the readers, to vote for your favorite! The winner will earn bragging rights and a delicious food prize from Argentina.
Please include the following information in your entry:
- Your full name
- Your place of residence [optional]
- The recipe
- The source of your recipe and any interesting background information about the dish
- The URL of your blog or website [optional]
Submit your Argentine recipe via the "Contact Me" button in the menu at the top of my blog, and be sure to include "2012 Argentine Recipe Contest" in the subject line. Contest entries will be accepted in both English and Spanish. The contest is open to participants around the world.
The deadline for contest submissions is Monday, June 25th at 12pm (Argentina time).
