It’s Officially Summer – Time to Get Your Grill On!
NEW YORK, May 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — The first response to any summer party invitation is usually “what can I bring?” Now that the summer barbecue season has begun, DinnerTool.com, one of the web’s premiere recipe and meal-planning sites, wants to provide the ultimate answer to that age-old question with the “What Can I Bring?” Recipe Contest, which will challenge backyard chefs around the country to discover the best dishes for summer gatherings.
From May 31 through June 23, home cooks everywhere can submit their most crowd-pleasing, original summer party recipes to DinnerTool.com, where they will be judged on taste, originality and portability by the site’s editorial staff. On June 28, four finalists will each receive a $150 cash prize and eligibility to compete for the grand prize, which will be determined by popular vote. The recipe earning the most online votes by July 10 will win the grand prize of $1000, a featured blog post on DinnerTool.com, a call-out in the site’s weekly newsletter and permanent placement in the popular recipe database.
“Summertime parties are all about fun, easy salads, showstopper main dishes and icy, mouthwatering desserts – and, of course, everyone thinks their recipes are the hit of the season,” says Ariane Duarte, DinnerTool.com spokesperson and Top Chef “Cheftestant.” “This contest will once and for all give our loyal DinnerTool users and block party star chefs the recognition they deserve.”
Following the announcement of the winner on July 13, all contest submissions will be featured on a special page, creating a collection of the best summertime party recipes from DinnerTool.com’s home cooks. Users can visit http://www.dinnertool.com/page/summer-recipe-contest to enter.
