Recipe Contest: Lost Recipes From Ancestral Kitchens
Contest Starts : 03 January 2017

We are back with a new contest to begin the year with love that will take us back to our grand mothers kitchens. As time goes by, the recipes get lost in words. Many of the recipes are usually transferred from one generation to another by word of mouth and are never written down. 

In this contest we will go back to the old and lost recipes from the ancestral/ grand mothers kitchens and bring them back to life and give them a place to stay forever. So it's time to wet your appetite and cook those recipes again for our new contest 'HEIRLOOM RECIPES'.
