Welcome to Maine Public's Dash of Maine Holiday Cooking Challenge!
Grab your mixing bowls, measuring cups, and spices because we've got something very special for all you home cooks out there this holiday season.
With the Maine Bicentennial Cookbook (a wonderful holiday gift this season!) We have pulled out six bicentennial recipes that we are certain you'll want to tackle in your home kitchen this November and December. And the reward? Tasty creations to wow your family and the chance to win a copy of the cookbook for your very self.
Each week starting on November 6 for six weeks we will feature one special bicentennial recipe and a helpful cooking tips videos featuring staff from Southern Maine Community College and the Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry to help you along! By the Friday at NOON of the following week, you will need to send us a picture of the completed dish at your table. This gives you a whole week to secure the necessary ingredients and make the dish yourself.
You can submit your picture (along with your phone number so we can contact you if you are chosen) to us at FUN@mainepublic.org. We will then randomly pick one winner each week and award them a complimentary copy of the Maine Bicentennial Community Cookbook! You have six chances to win over the course of the holiday cooking challenge!
