A culinary Commonwealth celebration!
In every issue, Kentucky Monthly serves up a tasty selection of recipes. Once a year, we ask readers to wow us with their culinary creations. The “Go Local Fare” category in previous years’ reader recipe contests was so popular with our home chefs, contest judges and readers that we’ve decided to dedicate this, our sixth annual reader recipe contest, entirely to recipes that shine the spotlight on our state’s farmers and producers.
Submit your favorite original recipe by March 3, 2016 and you may be featured in the May issue of our magazine. Plus, we’ll award one grand prize, a fabulously delicious Kentucky State Parks getaway, for best overall recipe and prizes for runners up.
