Saucy Mama Launches Food Blogger Contest
Saucy Mama, the gourmet mustard, marinade and condiment line, is gearing up for National Mustard Day by searching for food bloggers’ most imaginative uses of mustard.
The “Sliced Recipe Contest” will feature 25 bloggers as they try their hand at creating unique appetizers, entrees and desserts using the company’s latest releases, including Saucy Mama Dill Mustard, Saucy Mama Creamy Garlic Mustard and Saucy Mama Hatch Chili Mustard.
The first 25 qualified bloggers to apply for the competition through the company’s website will receive their Sliced Recipe Contest “Basket” featuring the spotlight mustard ingredients. In the spirit of reality cooking shows, Saucy Mama is adding a twist to its recipe challenge by requiring the use of yet-to-be-named surprise ingredients.
Judging will take place after each of three rounds, starting with appetizer recipes. Throughout the contest, the field will narrow to 10 contestants who will face the ultimate challenge by creating a dessert recipe.
The $1,000 grand-prize winner will be announced on July 15 – two weeks before National Mustard Day on Aug. 3. A second-place “Fan Favorites” prize of $250 will be awarded to the most popular recipe posted in social media venues.
Saucy Mama is the consumer gourmet condiment brand from Pendleton, Ore.-based Barhyte Specialty Foods.
