Five home cooks from each New England state have been chosen as semi-finalists in the “Chef Creations Inspired by Hood Cream” recipe contest. The 30 semi-finalists chosen were inspired by the high quality and taste of Hood Cream and created a variety of delicious recipes from Smothered Pork Chops and Rich Vanilla IceCremecake with Cookie Crust. These semi-finalists are competing for the chance to win $2,500 and have their recipe featured on Hood Cream containers. Vote for your favorite recipe on Hood’s Facebook page (facebook.com/hphood). One semi-finalist from each state will be narrowed down from the Facebook votes and chosen as finalists. The six finalist recipes will be voted on by a panel of celebrity chef judges and announced in mid-October. Fans can also follow contest updates on Facebook, Twitter (@hphood), and Instagram (@hphood). Visit Hood.com for more information.
