Festival season is in high gear in the Southern Cone and we’ve got another to add to the list. Chile’s own Platos & Copas magazine will be hosting their second annual La Despensa Gourmet festival at Casa Piedra in July. From July 19 to July 21, La Despensa Gourmet will feature gourmet products from around the world for all to enjoy. There will be more than 125 booths with gourmet foods on display, as well as cooking classes, workshops and countless tastings. The event promises to bring together the best that both Santiago and the world have to offer in terms of gourmet cooking.
Want to take part? Well, you can. Platos & Copas has just launched it’s contest to see who can come up with the best new recipe. Entries will be allowed for both entrée and dessert. Winners will be revealed on Sunday, July 21, the last day of the event. First place winner will take home a KitchenAid stand mixer, a one-year subscription to the magazine, and their recipe will be published as well! That seems like a pretty good take-home for simply submitting a recipe! We’ll see you there, and good luck! [via La Despensa Gourmet]
