Heirloom Tomato

ASAP and Asheville Scene’s Tomato Recipe Contest

We know for you, tomato lovers, that nothing beats the taste of a farm-fresh local mater all on its own. But, we also know that you get creative in the summertime, including tomatoes in all kinds of dishes so you can enjoy the season’s bounty morning, noon, and night. Do you add a pinch of a surprising spice to your tomato sauce? Enjoy them for dessert? Share your favorite, most innovative tomato recipes with us and Asheville Scene!

Asheville Scene’s resident food reporter, Mackensy Lunsford, will select one winner and one runner-up. Winning recipes will be printed in Asheville Scene coinciding with our Tomato Festival at Asheville City Market on August 10; click for all the details! Winners will also receive Asheville City Market Bucks.

Recipes must be received by noon on Monday, August 5.

  • Please provide email and phone (optional), as Asheville Scene will print winning recipes and may need to contact winners, and ASAP will contact winners to receive Asheville City Market Bucks.
  • Is this your grandma's recipe? A recipe that came to you in a dream? Tell us!
