EVA BERTRAN AND CHEF STUART O’KEEFFE - GLORIA FERRER IS GETTING READY TO LAUNCH ITS GLORIOUS BITES COMPETITION
2nd Annual Glorious Bites Competition Opens for Entries
Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards, producer of California’s most awarded sparkling wines, is once again searching for the most glorious appetizer recipe in the country to pair with its Sonoma Brut. Budding home cooks age 21 and over are encouraged to channel their inner-foodie and submit their signature appetizer recipe for the 2nd annual nationwide contest. All appetizers will be judged on originality, perceived taste appeal and perceived ability to pair with the Sonoma Brut, a wine that’s been produced by the winery since it was founded 30 years ago.
Each recipe entered will be reviewed by a panel of wine and food experts to select the top 18 semifinalists to participate in three live Regional Semi-Final Cook Off events scheduled to take place Los Angeles, California, Washington, DC, and Austin, Texas in September. Only three competitors will move on to the National Finals scheduled for Saturday, October 15, 2016 at Gloria Ferrer Winery in Sonoma, California. For official rules and to enter by August 31, 2016, as well as event ticket information, please visit www.gloriousbites.com.
