Buy Local Cookout


The annual Governor's Buy Local Cookout takes place at Government House in Annapolis to kick off the Buy Local Challenge. Attendance at this event is invitation only.


Chefs are invited to submit original recipes for the cookout. The invitation is open to Maryland farmer(s)/chef teams. A "chef" is a person with culinary training. Recipes from students currently in culinary classes are also considered. Recipes are to reflect creative ways to use Maryland-grown or Maryland-raised products.

The Buy Local Cookbooks

All entries submitted are included in a Buy Local Cookout Recipes Cookbook. The 2019 and past cookbooks are available or free download. See reprint permission policy​.
