FOLSOM, CA — To celebrate National Blueberry Month, James Beard Award-winning pastry chef Christina Tosi, co-owner of Milk Bar, has partnered with the US Highbush Blueberry Council (USHBC) as the judge of the organization’s Great Blueberry Recipe Showdown.

“With The Great Blueberry Recipe Showdown, fans can really embrace the versatility of blueberries and have a blast in the kitchen,” Tosi said. “I can’t wait to see what they create — I know I’ll leave with a full inspiration tank.”

The recipe contest is intended to spotlight the versatility of the berry. Participants can enter an original recipe into one of five categories: breakfast, lunch and dinner, snacks and appetizers, mocktails and cocktails, and dessert.

The grand prize winner will win $10,000 and have the opportunity to meet Tosi and tour Milk Bar’s flagship bakery in New York City. While the grand prize can be chosen from any category, one second-prize winner will be chosen from each of the other four categories. Those winners will receive $1,000 each, and a randomly chosen participant will win $500 just for entering the recipe contest. Entries can be submitted at BlueberryShowdown.com between July 1-31.

“USHBC is on a mission to grow our community of blueberry superfans and encourage people to grab a boost of blue each and every day,” said Kasey Cronquist, president of USHBC. “National Blueberry Month is the perfect occasion to celebrate blueberry fans across the US and shine a light on the incredible growers who work so hard to bring this beautiful and delicious berry to our kitchens. The Great Blueberry Recipe Showdown also gives fans the opportunity to share their talents and creativity as we celebrate this July. We’re excited to see their favorite ways to grab a boost of blue.”
