The Envelope, Please

Friends, the 2012 Seashells and Sunflowers Argentine Recipe Contest has drawn to a close. Thank you to everyone who participated by voting, commenting, and spreading the word about the recipes and the contest. And of course, a huge thanks goes out to our participants, Daniel, Vivi, Ana and Norma, whose delicious recipes were all worthy of first place in my book.

So, without further ado, I'd like to extend my congratulations to the contest winner, Norma Torres of Platanos, Mangoes and Me! Her recipe for tarta pascualina (spinach pie) captured the top spot with 37% of the vote [complete results here].

Norma will receive her choice of a special food prize from Argentina. I happen to know that she has a soft spot for Mantecol… ¡Felicitaciones, Norma!
