Hi dear friend,
Thanks for stopping by this week’s question of the week:
Have You Ever Done a Food Competition?
You know, entered a baking contest at a state or county fair or competed on a food tv show?
E.B. White and Charlotte’s Web Fair
This is on my brain because it’s almost time for our annual country fair–we’ve got a famous one in Blue Hill–it was mentioned in E.B. White’s classic children’s book, Charlotte’s Web.
To be clear, E.B. didn’t call reference the Blue Hill per se in the book, it was just called a fair.
He had to let the reader imagine that he was writing about his or her fair. But, word has it the Blue Hill Fair was E.B.’s inspiration. He lived a town over, in Brooklin, Maine.
Anyway, there’s a blueberry pie and blueberry muffin contest, per usual. My pie skills aren’t up to snuff enough to enter that competition.
But, there is a fudge contest. I’ve made decent fudge before.
So, more than one question for you this week.
Have you ever competed in a food contest? What was it and how’d you do?
Do you have any award-winning fudge recipes you’d like to send me?😂
