On September 17th, Slow Food USA is challenging people across the country to prepare a meal that costs less than $5 per person to prove it’s possible to eat well and not break the bank. Cook a meal with friends, have a potluck, or host a public event. Read more about the event here. [This is purely informational; you do not need to register on Slow Food's site unless you're hosting a public event.]
As an incentive, we’re giving away a Let There Be Bite cotton tote bag stuffed with partner vendor goodies: Pacific Sun extra virgin olive oil, Martelli slow-dried pasta, and the Toffee Box’s chocolate toffee—altogether, a value of more than $50.
Your job? Submit the recipe that you prepared (with high-resolution photo of completed dish) to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11:59pm on Sunday, September 25th. A winner will be chosen at random and your dish may be featured and promoted on LetThereBeBite.com. [You do not need to attend a $5 challenge party on September 17th to qualify.]
Your dish does not have to be composed of organic ingredients (though appreciated), but no high fructose corn syrup or processed food may be used, and, of course, the ingredients must cost less than $5 per person (for example, if your dish feeds 4 people, the ingredients would cost less than $20). Fresh food, prepared by you, for family and friends. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
