Now this is exciting news – a cactus cooking contest down in Monterey.
D’Arrigo Bros., Salinas, Calif., is holding a nopalitos — cactus leaves — cooking contest Sept. 16 and is seeking submissions for the event….
The company is asking for recipes to be sent by Aug. 29….
First prize is $750; second prize is $450; and third prize is $150, and photos of the winners and their recipes will be posted…
Dust off those nopal recipes, and despine those pads. I’ll be sending in my cactus fish sauce with capers recipe.
