Weaverville cookoff

Don Mason continues to feed me information about Northern California Dutch oven cookoffs:

Hi Dutch oven cooks:

On Saturday, October 11, 2008, the Trinity County Historical Society is hosting the first annual TCHS Dutch Oven Cook Off. The cooking area opens at 7:00 a.m.; cooks meeting and sign-in will start promptly at 9:00 a.m. with judging commencing at 1:00 p.m.

This is a 1 to 3 pot cook-off; main dish, bread, and dessert. There is a $10 entry fee per dish. The public will be invited to purchase a tasting ticket and a ballot ($5 per person) to sample and vote for the people’s choice for each category. All proceeds go the TCHS.

The Dutch oven cookoff will be held at the Jake Jackson Museum located at 780 Main Street, Weaverville, California. You will have a 12’x12’ cooking area with one table. You will be cooking in an open area so bring a type of E-Z up instant shelter.

Awards will be given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for each category. An award for first place in each category for People’s Choice Award will also be given.

Other activities will be occurring during this weekend including the Salmon Festival at the Highland Art Center located across the highway from the museum. The museum itself will be open including a blacksmithing course held the same day.

Come and show off your culinary skills and enjoy beautiful Trinity County.
