Call for Stories from the Stove: Charnwood Arts

Post date: Thursday, September 6, 2012
Deadline: 31 October 2012

Do you like to cook? Do you have a really special recipe? Enter our writing competition 'Into-nosh-an-all!!'

Our cooking is influenced from every Continent and corner of the world by the communities that live amongst us...... even now my mouth is watering at the thought of chilli paneer, chicken tikka, enchilada's, Singapore fried rice, and a nice roast dinner. We only have to look along the High Street at the vast array of food take outs, almost a different meal for everyday of the year! If you think about it, all these fabulous meals came from somewhere, from somebody's recipe book, from somebody's granny passed down through generations, from a mother showing her daughter, from a Chef throwing together the local produce in a moment of inspiration.

So, we at Charnwood Arts are asking for your family recipes, those really special ones, the ones that have been passed down, the ones you always have on special occasions, the ones that when you smell the aroma's you are transported to a different place. Tell us where the recipe came from, what invokes those memories for you, what the occasion was, why the recipe is so special. We want both your stories and your recipes, winning entries will have their recipes printed in a book, on a dedicated website and have your recipe launched at a celebrity event evening in the Autumn!

So e-mail your entries or send them by post to Charnwood Arts, 27 Granby Street, Loughborough, LE11 3DU marking your envelope 'INTONOSHANALL COOKERY COMPETITION'.

Charnwood Arts reserve the rights to use winning entries on their online forums, websites and publications.
