Welcome to the March Festival of Food Carnival, hosted by Diary of a First Child and Hybrid Rasta Mama. This monthly carnival will aim to bring together seasonal recipes, healthy food, and a diversity of flavours and techniques.
**Apologies to those who submitted in February and had problems with the forms. We trust that we have now resolved those issues. Please get in touch if you have any problems this month!**
Here are the submission details for March 2013
Theme: Cocoa Creations
It’s Easter soon and whichever version of the long weekend you celebrate or not, there’s bound to be plenty of sugary, palm oil rich chocolate all around you. We’re looking for the recipes you use to participate in the chocolatey goodness, without indulging in too much sugar, and all it’s side effects. Sweet or not, share your Cocoa Creations with us.
We prefer recipes with low sugar or natural sweeteners and as few processed ingredients as possible. However, we understand that healthy differs for every family, so please share your favourite.
There are two ways you can participate:
EITHER: Link up your old post on the carnival day, or submit a new post for the carnival!
**Please note, by participating or linking up you are agreeing to visit and comment on at least two other submissions**
Deadline: 7 March 2013 : Fill out the webform below and email your submission to us by 11:59 p.m. GMT at festivaloffoodcarnival [at] gmail.com
Carnival date: Wednesday 14 March . Before you post, we will send you an email with a little blurb in html to paste into your submission that will introduce the carnival. You will publish your post on Wednesday 14 March. We’ll include full instructions in the email we send before the posting date.
Please submit your details into our web form: This will help us as we compile the links list prior to the carnival.
Please do: Write well. Write on topic. If you’re using very uncommon ingredients, write something about them so your readers learn something new, or at least link to some information of them.
Please don’t: Please don’t use profanity of the sort that might be offensive to more sensitive readers or their children. Please don’t submit irrelevant posts.
Editors’ rights: We reserve the right to edit your piece or suggest edits to you. We reserve the right to courteously reject any submissions that are inappropriate for the carnival. Please also note that since there are two co-hosts on different schedules and conferring over email, our personal response to your submission might seem delayed. Don’t be alarmed. We also reserve the right to impose consequences if the responsibilities of the carnival are not fulfilled by the participants.
If you have questions: Please leave a comment or contact us at festivaloffoodcarnival [at] gmail.com
