Recipe contest winner
More than 75 submissions were entered in Nature’s Greens “Show Us your Heritage” regional recipe contest, but Charlotte’s Janice Elder – and her recipe for “Absolutely Amazing Appetizer Lattice Tart” – won the trip for two to Charleston. Elder was among six finalists selected by public vote. Recipes varied from appetizers and soups to entrees and desserts. The finalist recipes were cooked, judged and the winner announced.
