With party season looming, we think it’s time to expand our dip collection, so we’re launching a contest, “In Search of the Perfect Party Dip.”
Here’s how it’s going to work: You have until Oct. 16 to submit the recipe for your favorite homemade party dip (it can’t be as simple as sour cream and soup mix). Please send recipes to us via email, on our blog or through snail mail, and we encourage you to include a story and/or picture with your submission.
Tony and I will choose a handful of favorites for further consideration, and an independent panel of seven judges will be selected to choose our finalists.
We will announce the finalists and their recipes Oct. 23 in The Forum and on our blog, and serve these party dips in the Sarello’s Wine Lounge Oct. 29-30 for the public to taste and vote for the winner. Your recipe must be exact, as our chefs will want to make it just the way you do at home.
The winning recipe will be announced on Nov. 6 in both our column and on the blog.
The person with the winning recipe will receive a fabulous prize basket, featuring a great selection of prizes which will include:
• A four-course dinner for two at Sarello’s.
• One Daily Bread each month for a year, and dipping oils and vinegar from Breadsmith.
• A piece of original pottery from North Dakota potter Tama Smith, of Prairie Fire Pottery, Beach, N.D.
• The opportunity to participate in the demonstration video with Tony on InforumTV.com.
• $50 Hornbachers gift card.
More prizes will be announced in the weeks leading up to Nov. 6. Please include your name, city and a complete recipe, and submit through the comments section of our blog or send it to firstname.lastname@example.org or The Lost Italian Party Dip Contest c/o Sarello’s 28 4th St. N. Moorhead, MN 56560. Contest rules, eligibility requirements and more information are available on our blog at http://thelostitalian.area voices.com.
