Sooooo, I've been asked to judge a pumpkin recipe contest being held at Summers Farm on October 10. Never one to turn down good food, I totally said YES. I am all about fall food, and pumpkin is a favorite. Think you've got the goods to win? Here's the info on the contest:
"Calling all bakers! Come and participate in Frederick’s only pumpkin recipe contest at the Maryland Pumpkin Festival. Start working on your recipe because you will soon be able to register! A panel of local chefs will be judging your creations, which must use pumpkin and be an original creation. You will create your masterpiece and bring it to the Maryland Pumpkin Festival on Saturday, October 1o for judging and the awarding of prizes. Please visit MarylandPumpkinFestival.com for more information on how to enter."
And on a personal note, don't feel that you need to provide yet another recipe for grandma's pumpkin bread or go crazy with raisins. BE CREATIVE PEOPLE! I love savory pumpkin dishes and know that you can rock it out. So do it. 'K?
