Recipe Competition Winner Announced


Shuptrine’s Twisted Products is excited to announce that the grand prize winner of the Shuptrine’s Twisted Products Recipe Competition is Barbara Golder for her delicious Twisted Pierogies!

The competition contestants were charged with creating an original Shuptrine’s Twisted recipe using one of our Shuptrine’s Twisted Products – Twisted Relish or Twisted Marinade. The competition culminated with a cook-off on January 14th at the wonderfully quaint beer market, SturmHaus on Houston Street. Six finalists came prepared with their delicious and creative Twisted recipes. But, there could only be one grand prize winner!

Competition grand prize winner, Barbara Golder, won $250! Runners up were Ben Grizzell and Jeff McBrayer for their Twisted McGrizzells Meat and Beverly Jacks for her Twisted Sausage Balls. Grizzell and McBrayer won a case of the Shuptrine’s Twisted Product of their choice and Jacks received a 3-pack of Shuptrine’s Twisted Products. Cook-off guests were invited to taste the finalists’ recipes, and the suggested SturmHaus beer pairing, to help select the winner.

Shuptrine’s Twisted Products would like to thank everyone for their amazing Twisted recipe submissions. Be sure to visit the recipe section to check out recipes from the competition. We are looking forward to another Twisted competition in Spring/Summer – so stay tuned!
