Congrats to the Grand Prize Winner of the 2019 Neighborhood to Nation Recipe Contest!

The Strawberry Pandowdy has earned the top prize in the 5th annual contest celebrating and recognizing independent family or “neighborhood” restaurants and the one-of-a-kind dishes that reflect their local flavor.

Kevin Brown, Executive Chef of SELECT Restaurant in Spartanburg, S.C., receives a total of $10,000 in cash and $2,000 to share with a local charity as well as a three-day trip for two to the 2019 New York City Wine & Food Festival, the premier food and wine event that celebrates America’s favorite foods. His award-winning Strawberry Pandowdy combines Pillsbury™ Southern Style Easy Split™ Frozen Dough Biscuits, broken into pieces, with a creamy, sweet strawberry mixture that is baked and served warm in a small skillet, adorned with vanilla bean ice cream.
