Join the Flavor Dual

Love to cook? Then check our the Southern Arizona Flavor Duel 2022 that the Green Valley News is hosting monthly through November.

On the third Friday of each month, a recipe contest at a local restaurant will feature contestants as the GV News' editorial team live streams the event as they taste dishes made by our readers. The winners will be published in the Green Valley News' cookbook.

Sign up now for the category of your choice or multiple categories and be ready for us to taste your dish for a chance to win a $50 gift card and be featured in this year's Southern Arizona FLAVORS cookbook!
