From page B4 | November 22, 2013 |

With a $1,700 set of Kitchen Craft cookware for Best of Show and $100 for top place in each category, the annual Mountain Mandarin Festival Recipe Contest, just might be the recipe contest to win this year.

The popular event draws more than 40 entries and the judging will be a don’t-miss activity at the annual Mountain Mandarin Festival, Friday through Sunday, Nov. 22 to 24, on the Mandarin Cooking Stage in the Armory Building at Gold Country Fairgrounds in Auburn.

Snow’s Citrus Court will also be offering bonus cash prizes for recipes that use its Mandarin Orange Spread and any other Snow’s product.

Categories for main dishes, side dishes including preserves, and desserts are open to all ages. Dishes with completed entry forms should be delivered to the Armory Building Cooking Stage between 11 a.m. and noon on Sunday, Nov. 24. Judging begins at 12:15 p.m.

All recipes must be original and will become the property of the Mountain Mandarin Festival. They must be accompanied by a typewritten recipe. Applications with complete rules and regulations are available at MandarinFestival.com.

There are no provisions for heating or keeping dishes cold, so contestants should keep food in appropriate small coolers or non-electric insulated warmers.

Mandarin oranges, which are available fresh-from-the-tree during the winter months, have become a staple for holiday tables. Besides enjoying the juicy flesh straight from the peel, the citrus fruit is used in countless recipes including main dishes, peel for marmalade or candied products, juice for drinks, marinades, salad dressings and tasty syrups.

Mandarin oranges used in contest recipes may be either fresh Placer County grown mandarins (preferred) or canned.

Tickets are $3 on Friday; $7 on Saturday and Sunday, $5 for seniors.
