Here you can get all of the details on participating in the contest and then... start cooking!
How Do I Enter?
Drawing inspiration from the "Holiday Entertaining" theme, choose at least one Pacific Natural Foods ingredient and create a recipe for a dish in one of the four categories:
- Main Dishes
Once you've created your recipe, fill out your profile page, add the necessary entry details for your recipe, and then upload your recipe. Be sure to include a photo of the prepared dish.
How Many Recipes Can I Enter?
You can enter as many recipes as you want. If you're looking for inspiration, look at what last year's Challengers sent in.
Can I Vote for Recipes and Enter the Challenge?
Absolutely! You can enter as many recipes as you want in all four categories AND vote in all four categories. You can vote on each recipe only once every day.
Are There Any Recipe Must-Haves?
Yes. Every recipe submitted to the Everyday Chef Challenge must use at least one Pacific Natural Foods product as an ingredient.
How Long Does the Challenge Last?
You can submit recipes until 12 PM PST on November 14th. After that point, our judges will be assessing, tabulating, tasting recipes and choosing the winner of their requisite category. A group of Pacific Natural Foods staff will be verifying votes for the People's Choice winner.
What are my chances of winning?
You have a total of 29 chances to win. That's a lot of ways to be rewarded for your creative endeavors!
