This program, created and managed by Arkansas Heritage, is a statewide effort to honor the state's food history and culture. The program is free and honorary. Each of the five categories have different qualifications so there’s a "recipe" for recognition for everyone. The program is based on public nominations which then go to the committee who determine the finalists and winners.
