Steven Raichlen’s Farm Stand Challenge: Accept Now!

Enter Steven’s first ever Farm Stand Challenge and win an autographed copy of his latest book, the sensational How to Grill Vegetables.

How to Grill Vegetables

Farm stands, farmers’ markets, and CSA (Community Sponsored Agriculture) boxes are bursting with the season’s best produce, a stunning array of jewel-like bell peppers, eggplant, radicchio, heirloom tomatoes, rainbow carrots, sweet corn, berries, apples—and the list goes on.

We love what the high, dry heat of the grill does to produce, caramelizing exteriors and imparting flavors you’d never achieve in an oven or on a stovetop. You, too?

Then regale us with the grilled or smoked dishes you’ve made using fresh produce from local sources, whether it be a farmers’ market, CSA box or basket, or—extra points—your own garden. Photos, please!

Share your creations with us on Instagram by tagging @stevenraichlen and using the hashtag #RaichlenFarmStandChallenge. Again, be sure to include at least one photo and an explanation of your dish, whether it be an appetizer, main course, salad, side dish, or dessert. Steven will select his favorites. Five winners will receive a free autographed copy of his popular book, How to Grill Vegetables. Send Steven your submissions by Friday, September 3, 2021. This will be fun!
