America’s unsung dinnertime heroes are invited to test their skills in the fourth annual Rías Baixas Albariño Recipe Pairing Contest, a challenge that pairs home chefs’ original recipes with Rías Baixas Albariño.

This year, contestants are in for a chance to schmooze with Hollywood’s brightest stars at the 36th Annual People’s Choice Awards.

To build excitement, the “People’s Choice” category has been added to this year’s contest, affording participants additional ways to win. There are also gift cards and other great prizes to be won. We are big fans of Albariño, especially Albariño from Rías Baixas. Have you ever tried one of these wines? If so, and you’re inspired to create a recipe to go with it, then maybe this event is for you.

• Official rules and details can be found at Rías Baixas Wines. Entries will be accepted through November 30, 2009. Must be 21 to enter!
