Okay so I love to cook – and I love to win sweet prizes. That’s why I’m excited about the Dole California Cook-Off Contest and Sweepstakes. There are two separate awesome promotions here and each one carries some sweet cash prizes – so here are the details for you.
Dole Cook-Off Contest
The Dole Cook-Off Contest is basically a competition to see who can come up with the most awesome recipe using Dole products. You can win a trip to Los Angeles to compete at The Grove in the 2012 Dole California Cook-Off which will be judged by the famous Celebrity Chef Ben Ford. Not only that, but the person with the greatest recipe also gets a $10,000 cash prize and two runners up also get nice cash prizes of $1,000. Sounds great, huh?
They’re only accepting certain kinds of recipes though so make sure you understand the guidelines!
- Your recipe must contain at least 1 cup of at least 1 of the following products:Dole Canned Fruit (Mandarin Oranges, Tropical Fruit, Crushed Pineapple, Pineapple Chunks, Pineapple Tidbits, Pineapple Slices)
Dole Fruit in Plastic Jars (Mandarin Oranges, Mixed Fruit, Pineapple Chunks, Sliced Peaches, Tropical Fruit)
Dole Fresh Fruit (Bananas, Strawberries, Pineapples)
Dole Fruit Bowls (any variety)
Dole Canned Juice (Pineapple, Pineapple Orange, Pineapple Orange Banana)
Dole Frozen Fruit (any variety)
Dole Raisins or Dates
Dole Salad (Salad Blends, All Natural Salad Kits, Shreds)
- There can be up to 7 ingredients but NO MORE than 7 ingredients (so it can be less than 7)
- You must use a burner or grill to prepare the dish (the recipe can be partially OR entirely prepared on a burner or grill)
Those are the rules for the Contest. Now for the Sweepstakes!
