Contest entry period for annual duck recipe competition for professional chefs and culinary students ends June 5, 2016.

LEESBURG, IND. (PRWEB) May 17, 2016

Professional chefs and culinary students are encouraged to submit entries to the Maple Leaf Farms 2016 Discover Duck Recipe Contest for a chance at more than $20,000 in cash prizes. Submissions are being accepted now through June 5, 2016.

The focus of this year’s contest is “IntroDUCKtions” or the use of duck in an appetizer or first course offering. Most chefs are familiar with featuring duck as a main course. With this year’s contest, Maple Leaf Farms strives to inspire chefs to broaden their thinking and create duck applications that fit into a local bistro, a brew pub or on a tasting menu.

Recipe entries must include a Maple Leaf Farms duck product and will be judged according to creativity/originality, accuracy of the recipe and flavor. Professional and student chef recipes will be judged in separate categories, each with their own cash prizes.
