Former White House Chef Picks One-Dish Recipe Contest Winners
(NAPSA) - From the White House to your house, Stephen Giunta, former chef under President Reagan, has selected two winning recipes in a one-dish turkey recipe contest.
As lead judge in the Honeysuckle White and Shady Brook Farms Turkey "One-Dish" Recipe Contests, Chef Giunta selected Deborah Wiedmer, of Longmeadow, Mass., as the Shady Brook Farms winner for her Margarita Chili recipe. Lynn McCulloch, of Englewood, Colo., won out with her Oriental Lettuce Wraps recipe in the Honeysuckle White contest. Each won the grand prize of $1,000.
"As a White House Chef, I used to spend all day preparing dinner for the President," Chef Giunta said.
"But, I realize most Americans are on the run and they're looking for easy and delicious recipes.
"Both of these recipes fill that bill," said Giunta. "I also liked the use of easily available ingredients combined with the Mexican and Asian influences."
