John and Lisa's New Year's Party

Ring in 2012 by sharing your best appetizer and cocktail recipes in this contest hosted by Farmstead Chef bloggers John Ivanko and Lisa Kivirist.


New Year's Recipe Contest 

Whether you opt for a fancy ball or a cozy farmhouse gathering, no New Year’s celebration is complete without the presence of good food and delicious cocktails. This year, ring in a farm-fresh New Year with Farmstead Chef bloggers John Ivanko and Lisa Kivirist in their farmstead kitchen.

To join in the 2012 festivities, our hosts request that you bring your favorite appetizer or cocktail to the table. To do so, find your favorite appetizer or cocktail recipe and upload it using the form below. (Be sure to include a recipe name, ingredient list, preparation instructions and photo.) There’s no limit to how many recipes you can submit, John and Lisa just ask that they be farm-fresh and delicious.

Once you’ve submitted your favorite recipe(s), browse the other entries and vote for your favorite. Invite all your friends and family to join in the voting, too. The more the merrier! (Read the party rules to help ensure everyone has a good time.) To vote, log in with your MyFarm ID, and click on a photo to read the accompanying recipe. Press the vote button located in the top-right corner of the page to cast your vote for that recipe.

The creator of the winning recipe in each category (appetizer and cocktail), as chosen by HobbyFarms.com users, will receive a copy of John and Lisa’s new cookbook, Farmstead Chef (New Society Publishers, 2011), and 1,000 Hobby Farms Rewards points that can be used toward the prize of their choice.

The fun ends at 12 a.m. EST, Jan. 1, 2012, so be sure to submit your recipes and vote by then. Happy New Year!
