Do you use mushrooms in a creative way? Do you want to win $500 and be named 2014 Mushroom Appetizer Cook-Off Champion? Enter the annual Amateur Mushroom Cook-Off.

The Mushroom Festival will showcase the six finalists as they prepare their appetizers for judging on Sept. 6, with the winner being crowned by a panel of celebrity judges.

“We're challenging our amateurs to create an appetizer-sized portion of their best mushroom recipe,” said Jen Basciani, chair of the annual competition. “We had so many unique mushroom appetizer recipes last year that we are going to feature mushroom appetizers again this year.”

The first-place winner receives $500 and a plaque. Plaques are also awarded to second and third place winners. The winning recipe will be featured on the Mushroom Festival's website and in various publications.

The deadline to enter is July 31. Complete rules and regulations are available on the Mushroom Festival's website (mushroomfestival.org). 

“We're excited to see what creative recipes are entered for this year's cook-off,” Basciani said. “It promises to be a great competition.”
