Ever notice that half the time when you travel to foreign places any more that they don’t stamp your passport? Not to worry, during Plate of Nations 2014 you can be validated on a delicious, global scale and win prizes while you’re doing it!
Back by popular demand is the Plate of Nations Passport Contest, encouraging diners to take full advantage of ALL of the local venues offering special $15 and $25 sharable global menus during Plate of Nations March 21 – April 5, 2014. And we gotta’ say we’ve outdone ourselves on prizes this year. In addition to opportunities to flash your Passport stamps on our Facebook page for prizes throughout the event, we have some special prizes for those that go the gastronomical distance.
Third Prize – Qualify with 5 stamps: We will be drawing to give away 10 total Chinook Book “Locally Sustainable Coupon” apps for your mobile phone (Android or iOS). Chinook Book has generously donated the apps which can be used to find a variety of amazing deals throughout Puget Sound which “help you save money at local businesses that do good things for the environment and the community,” and are updated frequently throughout the year.
Second Prize – Qualify with 8 stamps: We will be drawing to give away an iPad Mini with a fully paid Chinook Book “Locally Sustainable Coupon” app, and as well as MLKBA restaurant and business information so you can keep exploring our “Local, Global Market.”
That’s pretty cool, right? But check out our Grand Prize!
Grand Prize – Qualify with All 11 Stamps: We will be drawing to give away a private cooking class and lunch for 4 with Cordon Bleu Chef Jose-Luis Pantigas, owner of Huarachitos Cocina Mexicana!! When you meet Jose-Luis and his wife Ana, you can’t help but melt into the glow of their passion and hospitality. All of that love goes right in to Jose-Luis’ inspired pan-Latino gourmet dishes. This is your chance to tap into secrets of a Mexico City restaurant family, with the sensibilities of a Le Cordon Blue cooking school background, and then eat up the rewards. We truly envy you.
Here’s how you get it done: Each time you visit a Plate of Nations restaurant and order a special meal, ask your server to place a stamp on the appropriate square. Then look for contests on Facebook and at the end of the event, take a photo of your Passport and post it on our Facebook page by April 6th, or mail it by April 8th to ATTN: Sarah Valenta at HomeSight: 5117 Rainier Ave S, Seattle, WA 98118.
Participating restaurants include Café Ibex (Ethiopian), Bananas Grill (Mediterranean and Middle Eastern), Rainier Restaurant (Vietnamese), St. Dames (global Vegetarian/Vegan), Thai Palms (Thai and Lao), Olympic Express (Southeast Asian/Cham Vietnamese Halal), The Original Philly’s (American East Coast), Joy Palace (Cantonese), Huong Duong (South Vietnamese), Othello Wok & Teriyaki (Pan Asian), and Huarachitos Cocina Mexicana (Mexico City).
Good luck and good eats!
