Do you have a favourite recipe that brings back memories, one that makes you think of an important person in your life, or a family staple? To celebrate Les Rendez-vous de la Francophonie, we're inviting Clare residents to share their favourite recipe for a chance to win a delectable prize in our Kitchen Party à la Baie contest!

A special dish can tell a story about who you are. Sharing a dish is a welcoming, communal gesture. These elements go hand in hand with Clare’s Welcoming Francophone Communities initiative, which is intended to celebrate the benefits of diversity in our community.

Send us your recipe (photo, list of ingredients and preparation instructions), and tell us why you chose it. You have until March 26, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. (AST) to enter. Your recipe could be randomly selected as a winner!
