86 Recipes Invites Consumers to Pick the Top City for Dining in America: San Francisco or New York

Restaurant Buffs Can Win a Trip to the City of Their Choice

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 15, 2007 -- To celebrate the publication of the new "86 San Francisco," 86 Recipes is offering consumers the chance to win a trip to the food city of their choice: San Francisco, the food mecca of the West Coast, or New York, the melting pot city that offers fine cuisine from around the globe.

To enter the "SF vs. NY Food Challenge," foodies must write, in 100 words or less, which city is the restaurant nirvana of their dreams -- and why.

The new "86 San Francisco: Recipes from Top Restaurants for the Home Kitchen" is a retro-style recipe box containing 86 user-friendly recipe cards highlighting dishes from San Francisco's top restaurants and most highly acclaimed chefs. The collection's recipes have been modified for the home kitchen and include dishes for every meal along with tips on how to prepare, a recommendation for wine and information on the restaurant the recipe is from.

Like its sister recipe box, "86 New York," it is a tour of one of America's most exciting restaurant cities, great for home chefs and travelers alike.

As part of the introduction of this great new collection, 86 Recipes have issued the challenge: weigh in your favorite restaurant city and win a visit to the place you love best. Entries will be judged on the basis of creativity (50%), grammar (25%) and style (25%) by representatives of 86 Recipes.

The grand prize winner will receive a trip for two to New York or San Francisco including round-trip, economy airfare from the commercial airport nearest the winner's home, three nights' accommodations, double occupancy, and two dinners in restaurants included in the 86 Recipes collection (to be selected by 86 Recipes). The winner may be awarded the monetary value, at the Sponsor's discretion, in lieu of trip. Approximate retail value (ARV) will vary dependent on point of departure but is estimated at USD $2,500.
