Fall Fest Recipe Contest

Today we are pleased to announce the first ever Primal Palate Fall Fest!

Fall is so special to us: all the flavors, the gatherings, and coming together around the table with friends and family over your favorite dishes. It is our favorite time of year. We love the crisp air, the amber and honey-hued foliage, and most of all: the fantastic food.

In honor of the arrival of fall, and our new fall line of organic spices, we’ve decided to throw a month-long recipe competition to celebrate. If you haven’t seen them yet, we just released two new packs of spices: we call them the Sweet Pack, and the Savory Pack. These two new packs bring together all the familiar flavors of the season. The Sweet Pack contains our favorite spice blends: Apple Pie Spice, Pumpkin Pie Spice, and Cinnamon Sugar Cookie… all are perfect for making sweet treats! The Savory Pack contains our essential roast flavors: French Grey Sea Salt, Rosemary, Thyme, and Sage. Together, their flavors define the season, from the first freshly picked apple until the last slice of pumpkin pie is served (usually at Christmas dinner for us).

Fall Fest is a recipe competition celebrating the flavors of fall

Starting TODAY, we are accepting your recipe submissions for the Fall Fest Recipe Contest!

Similar to our new Sweet and Savory spice packs, we are looking for your best SWEET and/or SAVORY recipes. One winner in each category will win a fabulous kitchen and cooking prize pack valued at $2300 (each), including a 10-piece set of top-of-the-line Wusthof Classic Ikon knives, which retail for almost $1100. Look for a post later this week about all the fantastic prizes. In addition to these two winners, we are also going to present a “Peoples Choice Award” to the recipe that gets the most votes (voting will happen October 20-26).

      Is this limited to only US based entries or can someone from the UK enter as well?

      1. October 3, 2015

        Anyone can enter. But if a winner from the UK is chosen, we might need to modify the prize package because a couple prizes (Bare Bones Broth and the Cappello’s) cannot be shipped that far due to their perishable nature. But we will work with anyone that wins to make sure their prize is fair, if they reside outside the US.

      This is brilliant! Thank you so much for the given opportunity!
