You all remember the last post I made regarding my Integrale Milanese ”Mexicana”? This is another fabulous entry into another fabulous contest. This time it’s the Marx Foods Integrale Gauntlet! I again, humbly call on all of my subscribers, followers, and casual readers to head on over to their site and please VOTE FOR MY ENTRY! Voting starts today 5/30 and ends on 6/1 so please HURRY!
The full details of the contest are below (shamelessly scraped from the Marx Foods Website):
Round 1: Savory Risotto Challenge Voting Method: Public Poll
Because this is a fantastic risotto rice, that is how we’ll start this challenge. Create an irresistible, original risotto recipe featuring Integrale rice. You are welcome to use any additional ingredients you would like, but this risotto has to be savory. Links to the recipes from this first round will all be published on our blog and put to a public vote to narrow down the field. The top 10 bloggers will move forward.
Round 2: Dessert Risotto Challenge Voting Method: All-Inclusive Internal Vote
This is the sweet round – create an original rice pudding (or “dessert risotto”) recipe featuring the Integrale. Again, you can use any additional ingredients you’d like, so long as you make a sweet treat. These recipes will be voted on via an internal vote – each of the participating bloggers will vote for their top two favorite recipes (other than their own), and the Marx Foods staff will vote for their top 5 recipes (5 votes total). The 5 bloggers with the most votes from this round will move forward to the final round.
Round 3: Photo Challenge Voting Method: Marx Foods Staff Pick
The last hurrah! For the final phase, it’s all about presentation. This is the photo round! We want to be wowed to the point of drooling by the photo and the recipe. Create any original recipe of your choosing with the Integrale rice, just make sure it LOOKS as good as it tastes. The submissions will be judged by our photographer, photo assistant and videographer to select one winner.
