[Updated with new prizes!]
I haven’t done this in a few years, but as I was hunting for something the other day, I came across the 2011 food writing contest winners. It’s time we did this again!
This year the theme is Food Memories. It doesn’t necessarily have to be about Portland, but it must be a food-centric experience. Let’s keep the entries to 500 words or so.
I will keep the contest open until about February 10th. The final winner will be determined by visitors to this site.
As an incentive, a few great prizes have been generously donated by local businesses:
- Michael Alberty of Storyteller Wine Company says he’s in for two bottles of wine.
- Chris Angelus of Portland Food Adventures and Right at the Fork podcast is donating two seats for a dinner/demo experience on March 6th by Kat LeSueur – Cocotte on March 6th, to be held at the JENN-AIR kitchen at Standard TV & Appliance in Beaverton.
- Renee Gorham is offering up a $50 gift certificate to Toro Bravo, $50 to Tasty n Tasty (good at either Sons or Alder) AND a Toro Bravo Cookbook
Perhaps we’ll get a few more incentive prizes as the contest picks up steam!
Here are a few links to previous contests. Each one has samples and past entries:
