Tomato Recipe Contest

As part of The Mid-Atlantic Red Fruit Festival, we held a tomato recipe contest open to food bloggers, home cooks, gardeners and tomato-enthusiasts. 

Our Featured Home Chef finalists have been paired with a top area chef who will cook their winning recipe at the 2010 Mid-Atlantic Red Fruit Festival. Festival attendees will get to enjoy each of the tomato-inspired dishes paired with wine on The Woodrow Wilson Plaza among Washington DC’s most storied monuments and rich history.

Tickets to taste the winning dishes can be purchased here >
