Our second HL Food issue is now on shelf and we’re in the cooking spirit! We hope you’ve got your hands dirty in the kitchen and tried a couple of the recipes yourself. There are so many delectable dishes, how could you resist? In celebration of the issue, we’ll be giving away some fantastic prizes in an exclusive HL Food photo competition that will run for five weeks, from 30 January until 29 February 2012. How it works: 1. Email your picture of a meal that you have recreated from the House and Leisure Food issue to firstname.lastname@example.org. 2. Make sure you caption the picture with the name of the recipe and the page number that it appears on. 3. There will be a call for entries every Monday, starting on 30 January, and readers will have the duration of the week to email their pictures. Please note that you have until 5pm on the following Monday to send in your pics. 4. At the end of each week our Food Editor, Raphaella Frame, will select the best dish and the lucky reader will win the prize allocated for that week. 5. There will be an exciting new prize up for grabs each week and you can submit as many entries as you like. 6. Keep an eye on our Facebook page, where we’ll be posting the winning pictures every week. 7. Remember that this competition is all about having fun and demonstrating your passion for cooking, rather than creating the perfect dish. So go ahead and enjoy yourself! Prizes are as follows: Week one (30 January – 6 February) – Le Creuset hamper valued at over R1 000, including a cake stand, classic tea pot and tea plate.
