(April, 2010) Agriculture Secretary Russell C. Redding announced today that the commonwealth is now accepting nominations for the third annual Governor's Award for the Culinary Arts.
The award recognizes Pennsylvanians who masterfully use locally sourced foods in an artistic and expressive form, while educating consumers and peers about the state's agriculture industry. Entrants must be leaders who have demonstrated a continued commitment to excellence in the culinary arts. They must work in the industry, either as a chef, restaurateur, purveyor or agricultural producer, and live in Pennsylvania.
"Pennsylvania's 63,000 farm families grow a bounty of quality agricultural products, including fresh produce, meats and dairy products," said Redding. "Our state's talented culinary artists creatively utilize these fresh, local ingredients in their cuisine, helping to keep money in our local communities and drive our state's economy. It's important that we recognize these talented culinarians and thank them for their commitment to keeping Pennsylvania growing."
