Orange County Fair – Food Blog Contest & Churros with Cinnamon Orange Chocolate Sauce

Hurry and enter,  you only have until June 1st ! I’m thrilled to be coming back to the Orange County Fair for the second year as the Orange County Fair Chef.  I’m even more excited to share with all of you the Orange County Fair’s first online Food Blog Contest. 
Enter a new post or one you have already posted within the last year.


First place winners in each of 3 categories receive $35.00. Top Blog wins $100.00.
All who enter will get a ticket to the OC Fair July 15 – August 14, 2011.


1. Directional Blog Post – This post should be written in a step by step format including the recipe. This type of blog post explains the method and technique of the dish, breaking it down for the reader to learn. If you enter this category, you might want to include pictures showing the progression of the dish and offer tips to the reader.

2. Personal Blog Post – A personal memoir or story with a recipe. Share a recipe and your personal experience about the dish, type of cuisine, or ingredient.

3. Informational Blog Post – This post could be about the history of a food, recounting a food event, or a review about a food experience that includes a recipe (with source if not original).

    I am still having trouble entering. I must create an account it seems online. But I can only find a place to sign in, not a place to create the account. Am I being stupid? GREG
