Flavored Nation Wants to Know Your State’s Iconic Dish

Voters have a chance to win tickets to an upcoming Flavored Nation event including airfare and hotel accommodations plus $2,500!

MCLEAN, Va.--()--Flavored Nation, part of Gannett Co., Inc. (NYSE: GCI), has launched Flavored Nation State Dish Showdown, a national survey to discover the iconic dish for every state. Through March 31, 2020, the public can cast votes – for their state and others at FlavoredNation.com/Showdown.

Every state has an iconic food, a composed dish that may be rich in history, include area ingredients, or simply be loved by locals. Whether California is best represented by fish tacos or avocado toast or Florida’s icon is key lime pie or a Cuban sandwich is a dispute the Flavored Nation State Dish Showdown aims to settle.

Voters in the Flavored Nation State Dish Showdown are automatically entered for a chance to win two tickets to a Flavored Nation 2020 event, plus airfare, hotel accommodations and $2,500. Participants can vote up to once a day. See contest page for official rules.

“We are hungry to know what the public will choose for each state’s iconic dish. It’s always interesting to see which dishes America prefers and how tastes change from year to year,” said Julia Baker, Event Director for Flavored Nation.

The Flavored Nation event celebrates each iconic state dish and gives attendees the opportunity to sample them all in one place. The winning dishes are expertly prepared by award-winning chefs from across the country.

“Flavored Nation is a one-of-a-kind event that allows attendees the chance to eat their way across the country in just one day. We’re looking forward to seeing the winning dishes and having our chefs prepare them for this year’s events,” said Jared Bobkin, Culinary Director for Flavored Nation.

Winning dishes will be reviewed by Flavored Nation’s panel and announced in mid-April, along with 2020 event locations. Learn more about Flavored Nation at FlavoredNation.com and follow on social media @FlavoredNation.
