Eatdrink & Win Recipe Contest

Eatdrink & Win Recipe Contest

Calling all chefs, kitchen crafters and creative cooks! What can you make with London’s finest local ingredients?

Our friends at Eatdrink magazine have cooked up a recipe contest for the chance to get your personal dish to go to print in London Ontario's first-ever community cookbook, our very own Forest City Cookbook.

Grill, shake, stir, and bake… What will you make?

Send Eatdrink your best original recipe using locally grown ingredients and it may come to life with its place among those from the most inspiring chefs in town. Recipes will be judged on creativity, taste, flavour, ease of preparation based on submitted instructions and use of local ingredients.

Submissions will be narrowed down to three, and the finalists’ recipes will be prepared and judged by Eatdrink’s panel of experts.

“We are thrilled to hold this contest and judge an amazing selection of recipes from London Ontario’s finest cooks,” says Chris McDonell, publisher of Eatdrink. “We know our readers share our passion for local food and drink, and I can’t wait to see their favourite recipe. Seeing their contribution in a quality publication like the Forest City Cookbook will be a highlight moment for any cook. Often, simplicity is best, but sometimes you have to pull out all the stops. Regardless, creativity will be rewarded!”

The prize: having your recipe (plus personal story and portrait) featured in the Forest City Cookbook, alongside 120+ original recipes from an impressive cast of the people behind your favourite restaurants, events, classrooms and small businesses here in London Ontario.

The contest opens September 7, 2017 and the deadline for recipe submissions is October 31, 2017.

The winner will be announced by Eatdrink and the winner will then work with the Forest City Cookbook production team to have their winning submission finalized for inclusion in the Forest City Cookbook.
