Beak Season


The 25th Annual Good Food Hour Recipe Contest is on, and finding the most delicious way to create a meal out of our fair-feathered fowl could earn one a spot in the upcoming John Ash cookbook, Culinary Birds.

KSRO will broadcast live at G&G Market in Santa Rosa to judge the contest, and this year it’s all about chicken. According to host and chef John Ash, “Chicken is a true culinary star. It can be wrapped and rolled, seasoned and sauced, while never losing its identity.” Four finalists will hold a taste-off with Ash (shown) and co-host Steve Garner, along with a panel of celebrity judges. Entries will be awarded prizes such as $250 cash for the first place winner, gift certificates, cooking classes, wine and cookbooks—and one lucky winner will have his or her recipe featured in Culinary Birds.

Deadline for entry is Wednesday, Nov. 9, at 5pm. Share your culinary genius by sending your original chicken recipe to KSRO Recipe Contest, PO Box 2158, Santa Rosa, CA, 95405. (Fax: 707.571.1097; email: [email protected]) Taste-off held on Saturday, Nov. 12, at G&G Market. 1211 West College Ave., Santa Rosa. 11am. 707.546.6877.
