Port & Cookie Rumble will be judged by famed chocolatier Jacques Torres and award-winning cookbook author Dorie Greenspan. One Grand Prize winner will be chosen and flown to New York City for private cooking lessons with Jacques and Dorie. In addition, the winner will receive two fabulous prizes from contest partner, KitchenAid®: a Dual Fuel Double Oven Range and their Professional 600 Series 6 Quart Bowl-Lift Stand Mixer. Contestants can also compete for the People’s Choice Prize for a chance to win the KitchenAid® Professional 600 Series 6 Quart Bowl-Lift Stand Mixer.

Jacques and Dorie have kicked off the contest on Facebook by posting their own cookie recipes they feel pair best with Fonseca BIN 27. Jacques created a Chocolate Chip Macadamia recipe, having been “inspired by the Italian practice of dipping biscotti in wine. The creaminess of the macadamia, coupled with the flavor of the chocolate, blend beautifully with the palette of Fonseca BIN 27.”

Dorie, on the other hand, plays up the sweet/spicy side of Fonseca BIN 27 with her Port Jammers recipe, noting, “All the flavors that we love with Port, like chocolate, dried fruit and spices are in cookies. I can’t think of two more versatile playmates – or two that get along better. Leave the milk to the kids – I’ll take my cookies with Port, please.”

The suggested retail price of Fonseca BIN 27 is $19.99; it is imported by Kobrand Corporation, New York, New York. For more information on the Ports of Fonseca, please visit http://www.fonseca.pt/.
