Cook Your Way Into Kenmore History

June 26, 2013 by Kenmore

For generations, Americans have visited State Fairs as a summer tradition to enjoy apple pie bake-offs, corn dogs and turkey legs, along with other favorites. State Fairs have now evolved to become a hotbed of culinary creativity and gourmet takes on family classics. This summer, the Kenmore brand is on a mission to find America’s best-loved recipes at select State Fairs as part of Kenmore’s 100th Anniversary.

Now through August 1 submit your summertime recipe for the chance to win these great prizes:

  • A $5,000 Kenmore kitchen appliance makeover
  • A trip to New York for the Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival
