logoANNAPOLIS, MD (June 21, 2011) ­  Governor Martin O'Malley announced Wednesday the 17 dishes that will be featured at the cookout he will host to launch the State's fourth annual Buy Local Challenge Week, July 23-31. Recipes were submitted by chef/producer teams and selected for their creativity, availability of ingredients, geographic representation, and maximum use of local ingredients. During Buy Local week, Marylanders are challenged to eat at least one locally grown, made or harvested product each day.

"We are excited by the diversity of recipes and ingredients presented to showcase the wealth of local products available in Maryland, and some of the many ways they can be prepared," said Governor O¹Malley. "We challenge all Maryland residents, institutions and organizations to buy local products and help strengthen our State's economy, preserve farmland, sustain a healthy environment, and provide a fresh, nutritious diet for our families."

The fourth annual Governor's Buy Local Cookout will be held on Thursday, July 21, at the Government House in Annapolis. (Attendance is by invitation only.) This year, Governor O'Malley invited teams comprised of one chef and at least one farmer, waterman or producer to submit recipes featuring locally grown, raised or harvested ingredients. More than 30 recipes were submitted in the categories of appetizers, side dishes or salads, entrées, desserts, and beverages. All recipe submissions, along with wine pairing recommendations from the Maryland Wine Association, will be published online beginning July 21. These recipes will also be featured in the 2011 Maryland Buy Local Cookout Recipes book, published by the Maryland Department of Agriculture.
