Calling All Chefs: Share Your July 4 Recipes

Submit your recipes for star-studded, summer-themed dishes

When it comes to the Fourth of July, there are fewer things more traditionally important than fireworks and red, white and blue.

But you can't leave out the food, either.

Working@Duke wants your help cultivating a collection of your favorite mouth-watering recipes for July 4-themed food. We want to learn about your favorite barbecue recipes, salads, family-friendly drink mixes and patriotic desserts. It's time to show and tell about your culinary skills.

Duke community members are invited to email recipes to – including a photo of your creation if you have one - by 9 a.m. Friday, June 27. We'll gather submissions and share the recipes on Duke Today and Working@Duke social media channels on June 30, just in time to plan your cookouts on the Fourth of July.
