Exciting news! VIVA, Our Best Lard, is now available in a convenient 2.5 lb tub on Amazon!

In the belief that there’s good eating – and perhaps a little gold – in those classic family recipes, Coast Packing Company, the West’s largest supplier of healthy animal fat shortenings, today announced the first-ever #LardLovers Recipe Contest.

Have a favorite recipe that uses lard?  Perhaps for a pie crust that people can’t stop raving about?   Or a special bread or cookie recipe that friends and relatives swear by, thanks to the lard they may or may not know is in there?  Maybe you’re the keeper of a family secret for a memorable fried chicken concoction or for mind-blowing tamales that never fail to wins hearts, minds and palates.  Any unpublished lard-laden recipe – sweet and/or savory – is fair game.

Contest entries will be accepted online starting today, September 5, at midnight Pacific time.  All online entries must be received by midnight Friday, November 3.  To enter, contestants can use the online form posted at https://coastpacking.com/lardlovers/.   Alternatively, entries can be submitted via Facebook: https://goo.gl/qCigJg.
