What’s your favorite holiday recipe that features seasonal, local ingredients? And what makes it so special? Why does your family love it so? And would you be willing to share your recipe (and the story behind it) with the rest of us?
From now until November 8th, I invite you to send me your recipe and the story behind it. A photo would be great too, if you have one!
I’ll be looking for recipes that use seasonal and regional ingredients as well as really great stories that let me know why this recipe is meaningful. And if you need some inspiration, check out our November Challenge. I am hoping that we can inspire each other to share and deepen the connection between the food we prepare for our families and friends, particularly when we are using ingredients that are grown close to home or have regional significance. These relationships can be an integral part of how we experience food. Myself, I have as much fun visiting with my local farmers, fishermen, and wine makers as I do in the kitchen!
Don’t worry if your recipe isn’t original. If your family’s favorite holiday comes from Martha Stewart Magazine, it’s no problem, just please do your best to give credit where credit is due.
Click here to SUBMIT ENTRIES BY EMAIL NO LATER THAN NOVEMBER 8.
Entries should include:
- The story of what makes it special to you

On November 22, I will announce my three favorite entries and a final contest winner. These three will enjoy a free lunch on me, and the winner will also have their recipe featured on my menu at Café Solé for the month of December!
