This Saturday, June 27th, Clatskanie Farmers’ Market welcomes cooks of all levels and ages to take part in a Kale Cook-Off. Entries will be accepted between 12-12:30pm, with judging to take place at 1pm in Cope’s Park. Contestants should bring a kale dish, ready to eat, in a quantity large enough for three judges plus taste testing for a “People’s Choice” award. Complimentary fresh picked kale will be available at the Market on the morning of the 27th and there is no fee to enter.
Each contestant may enter up to two dishes, which will be judged on appearance, taste, texture, “kaleness,” and presentation. Dishes should be kept at a food safe temperature until judging– limited electricity will be available; please bring propane burners and coolers as needed, along with two copies of your recipe. Winning recipes will be posted on the CFM website. Any questions may be directed to Lynn Green at 503-728-4723.
