Hood’s New England Dairy Cook-Off Moves to Providence
Monday, June 04, 2012
"Hood has proudly provided quality dairy products to New Englanders for more than 160 years, and we are thrilled to bring the Cook-Off to another great New England state," said Lynne Bohan, Hood spokesperson. "Just like Portland, Providence has become known as a 'foodie city.' We look forward to seeing (and tasting!) this year's creative and innovative recipes featuring Hood products."
Rhode Island's $10K Grand Prize winner
Perhaps it's only fair that Rhode Island snag the event, which will set up shop at Providence's Convention Center. The 2011 Grand Prize winner of $10,000 was Cranston's own Dan Rinaldi, for his Surf and Turf Sliders with Maine Lobster Sauce.
The recipe contest is open to all amateur cooks from the six New England states – Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. The Grand Prize winner will be awarded $10,000 and be featured in the 2012 New England Dairy Cook-Off recipe book.
