Posted on: August 17, 2011

Congratulations to Tina Hoban of Bellingham and Rebecca Spence of Vancouver who were named winners of the Washington Regional Finals of the Second-Annual Foster Farms Fresh Chicken Cooking Contest held at Kathy Casey Food Studios in Seattle August 12! These two Finalists each won a $1,000 cash prize and will now compete at the Finals in person on September 30, 2011, at The Culinary Institute of America at Greystone, in California’s Napa Valley. A $10,000 grand prize and one-year supply of Foster Farms fresh chicken will be awarded to the contest’s grand prize winner.

During the Washington Regional Competition, judges Kathy Casey, celebrity chef and cookbook author; Cynthia Nims, contributor Seattle Magazine and Cooking Light; and Jamie Peha, Table Talk Radio, selected Tina Hoban's Chicken with Cherry Tapenade over Creamy Pancetta Polenta recipe and Rebecca Spence’s Crispy Orange Chicken with Fennel, Avocado and Orange Salad recipe as their top picks based on their recipes’ use of fresh, local ingredients, including Foster Farms locally-grown fresh chicken. Judges made decisions based on taste, use of fresh, local ingredients, appearance/appeal, simplicity/ease of making and originality. Local bloggers in attendance selected contestant Mark Pyne’s Chicken, Wine and Brussels Sprouts Salad recipe for the “Bloggers’ Choice Award” for best use of local ingredients.
