Just like old-fashioned contests from the 1960s, local cookbook authors Georgeanne Brennan and Ann M. Evans invite home cooks to tell them in 25 words or less what their favorite recipe is in “The Davis Farmers Market Cookbook,” and why. But unlike the ’60s. the contest organizers want a digital photo of the dish to accompany the entry.

“The Davis Farmers Market Cookbook,” published in April by Mirabelle Press, celebrates the farmers at the market and the bounty they bring with seasonal dishes from appetizers to desserts. The Davis Farmers Market was chosen recently by USA Today as one of the top 10 farmers markets in the United States to visit.

The recipe contest will run from Nov. 1 to Dec. 12. Brennans and Evans will post the text and photo entry from the weekly winner on www.davisfarmersmarketcookbook.com. All weekly winners will receive an autographed copy of the cookbook, and the grand prize winner — the best entry among the weekly winners — will be treated to lunch with Brennan and Evans at Osteria Fasulo in Village Homes.

How is the grand prize winner decided? By public voting on the website where the weekly winners will be posted. Voting ends at midnight Dec. 12 and the winner will be announced Dec. 20. The winning lunch will be arranged for 2013.

Evans, who co-founded the market as well as the Davis Food Co-op, recently received the UC Davis College of Agriculture and Environmental Science’s top honor for her leadership in the sustainability food movement. She and Brennan, a James Beard and Julia Child Award winner, also write a blog (www.whoscookingschoolunch) and consult in regional food and agricultural marketing practices as well as in the development of the new sustainable kitchen — from home to school. Their food writing appears in periodicals, publications and guest blogs nationwide.
