U.S. Highbush Blueberry Council

Blueberry Chef Contest

March is your time to shine, Chef. And by shine, we mean show off. Flex your culinary guns. Think outside the blueberry box. Chop it, stir it, shake it – put a little blue into it! After all, fame, fortune, and self-glorified boasting are on the line.

Want Your Chance at Winning?

  • Snap a pic of your creative blueberry dish
  • Share on Instagram between March 1-31
  • Tag @LittleBlueDynamos & #BlueberryChefContest

What to Expect Next?

USHBC will select finalists based on the quality of the image you share on Instagram. Once selected as a finalist, we will notify you via direct message on Instagram and request the final recipe.

The finalist recipes will be reviewed by a panel of judges: QSR’s Editor in Chief Sam Oches, Chef Andrew Hunter and USHBC Marketing Manager Victoria De Bruin. The recipes will be judged equally by originality, prominence of blueberries and scalability for use on chain menus.
