Agriculture Commissioner Tommy Irvin is urging Georgia cooks to submit a favorite “secret” family recipe for the opportunity to appear in a Georgia Public Broadcasting (GPB) television special and be featured in the show’s accompanying cookbook.
“Some secrets are too good to keep,” said Commissioner Irvin. “Using and sharing recipes is what keeps them alive. They should not be gathering dust in a box and known only to a select few. This show and its cookbook are a good opportunity to showcase some family cooks and their recipes.”
The show, “Georgia Cooks: Secret Family Recipes,” will be hosted by chef Marvin Woods. Known for his inventive twists on foods, and for his popular show, “Home Plate,” Woods has spent many years in kitchens across Georgia and the Southeast.
Carolyn O’Neil, a registered dietitian, best-selling author and award-winning journalist, and Mary S. Moore, the founder and CEO of The Cooks Warehouse, will review the recipes for inclusion in the cookbook and help select three cooks who will be invited to prepare their recipe submissions for the television special.
Interested cooks should include their favorite secret family recipe, a brief background about their selected dish in 25 words or less, their full name, address and daytime telephone number. Information must be typed and may be emailed to GPB at firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to ATTN: GPB Recipes, P.O. Box 77128, Atlanta, GA 30309-9998. Submission deadline is October 15.
GPB will notify those whose recipes have been selected. For information about Georgia Grown products, visit www.gpb.org/georgiacooks.
