A Great Basil Dish Could Win

Fresh basil can easily be a star in so many dishes, we expect the judges will have a hard time selecting a winner this week! It’s week five of our collaborative 8-Week Recipe Contest with food52, an online community for home cooks. If you have a great recipe starring fresh basil, go to the food52 contest page to submit your recipe for a chance to win a $100 gift card from Whole Foods Market. All recipe submissions must meet Whole Foods Market’s Quality Standards, which means that they must be free of hydrogenated fats, artificial colors, flavors, preservatives or sweeteners. To enter, go to the food52 contest page, create a log-in account, and then follow their instructions for entering. (While we love seeing your recipes, entering one in the comments section of this blog post will not get you entered into the contest.) Food52 is accepting basil recipes starting today, July 5th and ending on July 9th, so make sure to get your recipe in quickly. Winners of the eight weekly contests will be eligible to win a grand prize of a $1,000 Whole Foods Market gift card! Want to get a head start on the remaining contests? Here’s what is coming up next:
  • July 12                    Swordfish
  • July 19                    Ground beef burgers
  • July 26                    Heirloom tomatoes
Good luck!
