We are proud to partner with Butter of Europe to present the “Unlock the Secrets of European Butter” contest.
Chefs, we want to see you take a classic French dish and make it your own by drawing from your culinary heritage and techniques that inspire you. Be sure to make butter the star of the dish!
The contest, open to US-based chefs, will have 3 categories in which to enter: SAVORY, PASTRY, and BAKERY. A grand prize winner in each category will get flown to San Diego to participate in the Anti-Convention 2020 and a paring knife from Meglio Knives. Additionally, there will also be online voting, in which the most popular dish entries judged by the community will win the People’s Choice Prize.
Once you’ve created your unique take on a savory French butter dish, pastry, or bakery item– snap a high-quality photo and submit your dish and the description online. Then, don’t forget to share it on a public Instagram account with the hashtag #SecretsOfButterContest
