Historic Hawes Farm first annual Dutch cookoff

The First Annual Dutch oven cookoff at the Historic Hawes Farm will be held Saturday, October 30, 2010. This event will be held at Historic Hawes Farms, 21923 Dersch Road Anderson, California.

This is a three-pot contest. However, if you wish to cook in one or two pots, that is okay. The three-pots cookoff should have a main dish, bread and dessert. $100 and a plaque will be awarded to the first place winner for each category. Plaques will be awarded to second and third places. You could win all three! We will be cooking in an open air barn. Halloween theme table decorations are encouraged. A special plaque will be given for the best table decoration.

Please return the application by October 8th. We need to arrange for tables and chairs.

We will be there about 7 a.m.. Start cooking when you need to. A cooks meeting will be held at 9 a.m. and judging will commence at 1 p.m. The public may purchase tasting tickets ($5 each) to sample your dishes after they have been judged. The ticket holder then can vote for the dishes they like best. Plaques for People Choice Award will also be awarded.

We are encouraging all beginning Dutch oven cooks to participate and cook. You should have a good time and you can learn a lot. As our rules say, "Have Fun and Cook great Food."

If you have any questions please contact Don Mason at Hope you can join us for good fun and great food.
