Let us know what's cookin' in your world: Enter your recipes now

GET OUT YOUR RECIPE BOXES and enter The Herald's 1996 ``What's Cooking in Your World?'' recipe contest.
The event is under way, and contestants will have until noon Oct. 3 to enter recipes in any or all of the six categories.

More than $1,000 in prizes will be awarded including the grand prize of $250.

A coupon and details of the contest will be published in The Herald regularly. Or you can read the rules and print out the entry form from our site.

Barbara Bateman won a $500 savings bond for her appatizers, Cocktail Reubens, in the 1995 "What's Cookin' in Your World" contest.

This is the third year for The Herald's recipe contest in the 1990s. The contest, which was revived in 1994, was a popular event in the late 1970s and early 1980s. In 1994, more than 300 recipes from contestants were featured in a cookbook. In 1995, 200 recipes were published in a cookbook along with photos and stories on the winners and semi-finalists in the recipe contest.

Readers may submit recipes in six categories, which include a cooking light category reserved for favorite traditional recipes that have been revised to cut fat and calories. Other categories are appetizers, salads, ethnic, main dish/casserole and desserts.

A panel of judges will pick three semi-finalists in each category. Those 18 contestants will be invited to compete in a bakeoff Oct. 19. The judges will taste each of the various dishes and decide on the winners. A winner will be named in each category, along with an overall grand prize winner.

Each category winner will receive a $75 grocery shopping certificate, redeemable at Hermitage County Market.

All of the recipes submitted for the contest will be published in a cookbook with The Herald, Sunday Oct. 27. (We also hope to post the contents on line, too)
