Del Monte Fresh Produce announces its third of four weekly aspiring chef winners for its “Find Your Inner Chef” online contest. Areli Biggers, from Hopkinton, Massachusetts has made it to the final round and will be competing at the Cook Off Challenge in Miami, Florida.
“We congratulate Areli Biggers for being selected as our third week winner,” says Dennis Christou, vice president of Marketing. “Areli’s winning recipe, Banana Flan using Del Monte fresh bananas is not only a testament of her impeccable taste buds, but also an example of her culinary talent. We look forward to meeting Areli in Miami and seeing her in action.”
The Find Your Inner Chef contest encourages consumers to participate in a fun and fresh culinary experience by creating or using their favorite recipe with Del Monte fresh fruits and vegetables. Online participants can earn daily prizes, including retail gift cards, culinary kitchen tools, and tabletop appliances.
“This is fantastic news! I can’t believe I’m going to the finals,” says Areli Biggers. “My Banana Flan is always a tasty treat for me and my family. The Del Monte bananas I use are so fresh they help make my flan irresistible. Of course, I could not have won without the support of my friends and family. I want to express my gratitude to everyone who voted for me.”
Areli’s win was the result of appeal of the recipe, use of Del Monte Products, the number of “likes” and tweets through social media. Del Monte will announce the final winner nationally and in their hometown.
