Oreo Mudslide Pie Voted 'Ultimate' Oreo Recipe Michael Martins Creates Signature Oreo 85th Birthday Dessert

PARSIPPANY, N.J., Sept. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The Nabisco Food Service Company announced that Michael Martins' Oreo Mudslide Pie won the title of "Ultimate" Oreo Recipe awards ceremony held today in New York's FAO Schwarz toy store.

Martins culinary creation will now become Nabisco Food Services' signature dessert for next year's celebration of Oreo Cookie's 85th birthday and his recipe will also appear on future retail packages of Oreo cookies.

A chef at The Jefferson Hotel in Richmond, Va., Martins was one of five national category winners vying for the title in Nabisco's first annual Oreo recipe contest.

Open only to food service professionals, the competition generated 360 entrants from such diverse establishments as the U.S. Army, the Four Seasons Hotel, McDonald's, the Boca Raton Resort & Country Club and a Kappa Delta Sorority House. Each recipe was entered into one of five categories: Lodging, Quick Service Restaurants, White Table Cloth, Non Commercial/Cafeteria and Midscale/Family Restaurants.

The winners in each category were:

-- Lodging: Samuel Harshberger III, ANA Hotel, Washington, D.C.,

Oreo White Chocolate Mousse

-- White Table Cloth: Michael Martins, The Jefferson Hotel,

Richmond, Va.,

Oreo Mudslide Pie

-- Midscale: Mary Jo Owen, Midnight Pass Pub, Siesta Key, Fla.,

Oreo Mixed Berry Tiramisu

-- Non Commercial: Laura Galante, Marriott Management Services,

Greenfield, Mass.,

Oreo Orange Truffles

-- Quick Service: Phyllis Gehring, A&W Family Restaurant, Tacoma, Wash.,

Oreo Peanut Butter Pie

The judging panel consisted of food industry experts, as well as a group children -- the real Oreo experts -- who voted for their favorite recipe based on taste, taste, taste!

"We created this food service competition because Americans are always looking for new and fun ways to eat their favorite cookie, Oreo. And since over 50 percent of all food dollars are spent eating out, what better way to deliver great Oreo taste," says Oreo Senior Business Manager Regina Silitch. "We never expected such deliciously unique recipes, like UFO-reo, Oreo Bagels, Oreo Lasagna and Oreo Cookie Wontons. It was really difficult choosing the five category winners. It will be even harder for the judges to pick the 'ultimate' recipe!"
