LILY JULOW OF GAINESVILLE, FLORIDA WINS FIRST-EVER WHITE FLOWER FARM RECIPE CONTEST

Over 300 recipes were submitted for White Flower Farm's inaugural "The Great Tomato Celebration Recipe Contest." In fact, it was hard to choose just one grand-prize winner -- and three runners-up -- from the excellent and delicious recipes. Christopher Kimball, and the America's Test Kitchen, had the difficult task of screening and testing each recipe. Each entered recipe had to be original and include fresh tomatoes. Canned or frozen tomatoes were allowed as a secondary ingredient.

After more than a month of testing, the winners were selected. First place was awarded to Lily Julow, of Gainesville, Florida for her mouthwatering Fried Green Tomato BLTs. Second prize went to Judy Armstrong of Prairieville, Louisiana for Three Tomato and Fresh Herb Salmon; third prize to Julie Ward of Shawnee, Kansas for Summer's Best Italian Crostini; and fourth prize to Roxanne Chan of Albany, California for The Provencal Petite Tomato Pie.

Lily Julow won an all-expenses-paid trip to White Flower Farm (in Litchfield, Connecticut), a gift certificate, books (courtesy of America's Test Kitchen), plants and more. Each of the runners-up will receive an assortment of books, plants and a gift certificate from White Flower Farm. Each winning recipe is posted on the White Flower Farm Web site (http://www.whiteflowerfarm.com/tomato-recipe-winners-page.html), along with photos of the winners. White Flower Farm enjoyed their first vegetable contest so much that they are planning another one for next spring.

Prizewinners are available for interview upon request. Chris Kimball of America's Test Kitchen is available for a limited number of interviews. Barb Pierson, the nursery manager at White Flower Farm, is available for interviews upon request, as are other experts.
