FAMILY HEIRLOOM RECIPES
Family Favorites Never Served to Guests
(or whatever you like)
Indiana State Fair
August 13, 2015
Our Family Heirloom Recipe competition seeks your best made from scratch recipe of a family favorite never served to guests. Maybe it is a favorite reuse of leftovers, something cobbled together because Mom’s doing laundry. Can’t think of anything, well bring whatever you want. Recipe should originate before 1950.
Contestants brought a prepared dish along with a brief story of who passed the recipe down to them, ethnicity, if relevant, number of years the recipe has been in their family and any interesting information about their recipe.
1st place – $150., 2nd place – $100., 3rd place – $50.
