2018 Summer Recipe Contest Voting and Round Two EntriesSep 10, 2018Posted by Forno Bravo
The submission period of our 2018 Summer Recipe Contest has officially ended and it’s time to test some recipes and cast your vote. We are thrilled with all of the recipes that came in! They run the gamut from main dishes and appetizers to bread and dessert. There are samples of cuisine and ingredients from many places – North America, South America, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. Wood Fired cooking spans the centuries and the globe; our 2018 contest entries do as well!
We hope you have tried some of last month’s entries and we can’t wait for you to check out the remaining dishes that are listed below.
All votes are due by Wednesday, October 3rd, 2018. We ask that you submit only one ballot per person to keep the playing field level. (Invite your friends and family to vote too. Let’s get the word out!) Help the winner take home a beautiful glazed Spanish terracotta pot and lid ($50 value,) while you enjoy the fruits of their recipe.
