Heritage Festival Recipe Competition

To celebrate this year’s Heritage Festival we want to hear the story behind a treasured family recipe.

What is your signature dish? Does it have a story that reflects your heritage?

Share your family recipe and story behind it in our Heritage Festival Recipe Competition and you could have your food styled and photographed by a professional food stylist. Ten finalists will have professional photos and recipes featured in the “My Food Culture, My Story” art exhibition and on the Harris Farm Markets website. You could also win Harris Farm Market vouchers.

Many of us have family recipes that hold a magic memory. Sharing them and making them can bring us joy - a celebration of our past and present.
