    Greater Midwest Foodways Alliance's
    Family Heirloom Recipe Contest, 2017

    Join us as we live judge the family heirloom recipe contest at Midwestern Fairs!

    We will read aloud the history of each dish, mingle in some interesting conversation and a trivia contest to keep everyone on their toes! Prizes from The Spice House

    Our Family Heirloom Recipe competition seeks your best made from scratch heirloom recipe of a family favorite never served to guests. Maybe it is favorite reuse of leftovers, something cobbled together because Mom’s doing laundry. Can’t think of anything, well bring whatever you want. To encourage delving deep into your family’s culinary history, please submit family recipes 50 years or older. We look forward to learning about and tasting your treasured foods.

    PRIZE money sponsored by The Spice House in Illinois and Giant/Eagle in Ohio:

    1st place - $150., 2nd place - $100., 3rd place - $50

    Greater Midwest Foodways Alliance is dedicated to exploring, celebrating and preserving unique food traditions and their cultural contexts in the American Midwest. By hosting public events, developing archival resources and generating publications, the Alliance celebrates the distinctiveness of a region that is as varied in tastes and traditions as it is in its geography from the Great Lakes to the Great Plains. Exploring indigenous foods like Wisconsin cranberries and Minnesota walleye, celebrating iconic flavors like the wheat and corn from across the prairies, chronicling cuisines from Native American to early European immigrants to 21st-century newcomers, or highlighting fish boils in small towns and fine dining big cities, the Alliance promotes and chronicles the diversity of the region’s culinary character.
