Welcome to the inaugural month of a year-long Best Wine Country Recipe Challenge. From April through March 2012, BiteClub is on the hunt for great cooks from Sonoma, Napa, Mendocino, Lake and all of the Northbay to submit your Wine Country recipes each month.
The Idea: Each month BiteClub will ask readers to submit original recipes in one of 11 categories — from eggs to beef — that use at least ONE local ingredient and showcase your originality, creativity and good taste. I’ll recipe test the most promising submissions and pick one winner each month whose recipe reigns supreme. At the end of the year, we’ll host a cook-off between the winners (but don’t be surprised if a few runners-up show up as well) for the Best Wine Country Recipe.
Best Recipes each month will be eligible for prizes — including restaurant gift certificates and having your dish show up on a local restaurant menu!
