"Creating an original recipe is a culinary challenge that, when successful, can raise one’s status from skillful chef to dining diva! But what if that original recipe could win you and a guest an all-expense paid trip to New York City? Better Homes and Gardens, in partnership with the Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry brand, is encouraging home chefs everywhere to enter the 1,2,3 Puff! Recipe Contest for a chance to win a trip to The Big Apple!
From savory appetizers to seasonal entrees and sweet, flaky desserts, Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry has long been a staple in creating simple yet impressive dishes. Contestants may submit up to three entries, one for each category: appetizer, main dish, and dessert. To enter, contestants must create an original recipe with Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheets or Shells and upload a photograph of the finished recipe to www.123PuffContest.com.
