General Information

No purchase necessary to enter or win a prize in this contest; void where prohibited. A purchase will not improve your chances of winning. This is a skill-based contest; this is not a game of chance. Winners will be chosen based on the stated criteria.

Only one recipe per chef, please. Only the first recipe submitted by a chef will be judged; submission of multiple recipes from the same chef will result in disqualification of all subsequently submitted recipes.  (For purposes of clarity, a facility may submit more than one recipe, but each recipe must be submitted by a different chef.)

A complete submission includes:
1) recipe and instructions
2) photo of dish and photo of chef/culinary team
3) Description of how you promoted the item with 2 photos or samples of promotional materials.

Judging Criteria:
Recipe narrative (29%)
Recipe submission (13%)
Recipe novelty, creativity, suitability for health care (29%)
Marketing and promotion (29%)

Winners will be notified by email/phone by April 2024 and announced at CleanMed, May 23, 2024.
