Win a trip for 2 to New Orleans & Dinner at Emerils!


Okay, I teased you a couple of weeks back with a four-night trip for two to New Orleans, airfare, rental car, posh hotel, and dinner for two at a couple of high-end restaurants, including Emerils!

So, here’s the deal…as an advertiser on AM 860 KPAM Radio, we are participating in their current Eliminator Radio Game…win $86 just for being the eighth caller, and be entered for a chance to win one of 44 possible prize packages, including our trip to New Orleans!

kpam logoListen to AM 860 KPAM Radio from Monday, June 2nd to Friday, June 20th between the hours of 5am and 6pm for your “Cue to Call”.

CALL 503-225-0860. Once you are chosen to go on-the-air, you will be asked to take one prize off “The Eliminator” Board.


Being chosen to come on-air will result in you winning $86 cash and qualifying for the “Grand Prize” party on June 26th, where you’ll have a 1 in 44 chance of randomly winning the final prize on “The Eliminator” board.

If we’re the last prize standing, and your name get’s drawn from the 44 callers, not only do you get the $86, but you win the four-night trip for two to New Orleans!

Help get the word out on our amazing recipes, easy dinner plans, awesome outreach programs, and get in the running for a trip to The Big Easy, Baby!

Listen to KPAM for the “Cue to Call”


If you do happen to win the prize package, AND you’ve been a SimplySmartDinnerPlans member with a sign up date prior to the winner notification…Chef Terry, Chef Chris, and myself will personally come to your home and prepare a 10-course “Creole Tasting Dinner” for you and up to a dozen of your closest friends…for FREE, just to give you a little taste of what’s to come!

Good Luck,

-Chef Perry


Name the Menu Contest!

In celebration of our upcoming Gluten-Free Menu (2 weeks!), hautemealz.com is going to continue with the tradition we began with our “Haute & Healthy: Diabetic-Friendly” launch, and we’re going to let YOU name the new menu!

Here are some things to keep in mind:Current Menus:
~ Classic Hautemealz (our regular menu)
~ Lighter-Side (reduced calorie menu)
~ Haute & Healthy (diabetic friendly/low carb menu)

The new menu will focus on the same easy-to-prepare, delicious, “real food” types of recipes, which will be professionally modified for gluten-intolerant home cooks and their families by our GF Expert Chef – Maryse Blake, CHC.

We have collected some extremely cool “swag” from a number of food events this summer, and are putting together a basket (estimated value of $200.00), of foodie awesomeness.

Gourmet coffees, hazelnut cooking oils, cookbooks, herbs, spices, kitchen tools, and whatever other cool stuff we can find to jam into the box between now and the end of the contest.

ONE lucky winner will get the whole kit-and-kaboodle mailed to them on October 1, 2012.

How it works: Each contestant may submit up to three (3) entries, below. For voting purposes, each entry must be made separately.

Once all of the entries are in (no later than 9/23) the hautemealz.com team will vote to decide on our favorite three names (regardless of # of votes). Of those three, the one with the highest number of individual votes, will be deemed the winner.

To clarify: the number of votes you receive will NOT determine if you move to the second round, but they WILL determine the winner of that round. (Try to keep it fair for everyone!)

You do NOT need to be a hautemealz.com subscriber to participate, but menu subscribers will get one automatic “LOVE” vote from each of the judges!

hautemealz.com chefs and affiliates may not compete.

You may begin soliciting votes from your friends, family, Facebook and twitter, followers, or strangers on the street, immediately. All they need to do is visit this page and “like” your proposed menu name.

If they want to “like” our page, as well, that would be swell.
