If you’ve ever had a hankering to be lionized as a hot dog uber chef, this could be your big chance.
Kayem Foods, the Chelsea company known for its Fenway Franks (as well as for its brats, sausage, and deli meats), is launching a contest that invites aspiring food buffs to lavish their culinary creativity on the humble hot dog.
“The winning dog will be announced on National Hot Dog Day, July 23, and will be served at Red Sox games at Fenway Park that night and select games thereafter,” Kayem said in a press release.
More from the release: “Kayem’s ‘Create The Next Fenway Frank’ contest will continue through June 15 and fans can visit facebook.com/kayemfranks to create and submit their signature frank. Fans will start with a classic Kayem Fenway Frank and New England Style bun and can add toppings and dressings to make their creation a home run. On July 1, Kayem will present its lineup of the top five franks as selected by Kayem, and Facebook fans will have the chance to vote for their favorite.”
Not only will the winning entree be showcased to the hot dog-eating public at Fenway, but the grand prize winner will also receive a $1,000 cash gift card, said Kayem, which added that the runner-up will receive a $500 cash gift card.
