Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese has come up with a creative way to not only celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month but inspire usage of its high-quality cheese as well: a contest! In honor of the month-long celebration, the cheesemaker is encouraging home chefs, recipe enthusiasts, and culinary aficionados to participate in its 2023 Hispanic Heritage Month Recipe Contest, giving retailers a prime merchandising window in the process.
“Cooking is something that undoubtedly brings people together,” said George Crave, Founder of Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese. “We’re excited to spotlight some authentic, diverse recipes in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.”
Submissions for the contest opened September 15 and will be accepted until October 15, a release explained. To enter, consumers need only submit recipes reflecting an authentic Hispanic dish or a unique spin on their favorite Hispanic recipe using one or more Crave Brothers cheeses and yields 6–8 servings. Entrants may submit a maximum of three entries.
The first-place winner will take home a $200 cash prize. The second-place winner will score a Crave Brothers Sampler Gift Box and Crave Brothers Chocolate Mascarpone Pie Gift Box, while the third-place winner will earn a Crave Brothers Sampler Gift Box.
This contest is free to enter, requiring only a typed recipe and a photo of the finished product. Recipes will be judged by Crave Brothers staff and family based on authenticity, creativity, flavor, and use of artisan cheeses.
