Cono Sur, the Chilean wine brand, is launching a search to find the dish to match their Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Noir.
The entrant with the most votes in Ireland will travel with a friend, compliments of Cono Sur, to compete in the Grand Finale held in Paris in November.
Here they will compete with finalists from Finland, Sweden & UK to win the overall prize of a trip for two to Cono Sur Vineyards & Winery in the heart of stunning Chile.
From Monday 23rd June to Monday 11th August, Irish food bloggers across the country can log on to www.conosur.ie/blog and upload their original recipe that they feel pairs best with either the Cono Sur Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc or Single Vineyard Pinot Noir.
Voting is then open to the public from 18th August to 22nd September, when Cono Sur will select the top three recipes with the most votes from each country to go on to Round Two as semi-finalists.
For Round Two, chef Christopher Carpentier will prepare each semi-finalist´s dish and select one finalist from each participating country. Winners will be announced and officially notified on 9th October.
For the third and final round, the four international finalists will be sent to Paris for 14th-15th November to participate in the Grand Finale. Each finalist will prepare their dish for a panel of judges, including Cono Sur´s General Manager and Chief Winemaker, Adolfo Hurtado, as well as chef Christopher Carpentier.
The overall winner will be chosen and announced on the night, winning a fantastic trip for two to Chile.
