As I told you last week, we will be highlighting a single Dublin St. Patrick’s Day Festival event each week until the day of the event on March 17, 2012. This week Patty Hirst sent me information on piece of the pie, or stew I should say.
Patty heads up the big stew cook-off, and here at Texansunited.com, we know some pretty good stew makers that we are hoping will enter the event…just to make it interesting, you know! Fredda
Get the recipes out and fire up the test kitchen. The St. Patrick’s Day Stew Cook-Off is just a few weeks away.
Sponsored by the Dublin Chamber of Commerce, the cook-off will be held under the gazebo on the Corner Lot. March 17th falls on Saturday this year; therefore, we are expecting a big turnout for the annual festivities.
The field is wide open for beef, pork, venison, poultry, vegetarian—any type of stew is welcome and individuals or groups are urged to enter for a fee of $10; these proceeds go to the chamber.
The fully cooked HOT stew should be brought to the Corner Lot in Dublin no later than 11:00 a.m. and should be in a large Crockpot or similar vessel so it can be plugged in and kept hot for serving/judging.
For $2.00 guests can purchase a ticket that will allow them to sample all stew entries. Then, they can write the name of the best stew on the back of the ticket as their vote to determine the winner. Votes will be counted at 1:00 and the winner announced ASAP.
Prize money will be awarded in Dublin Dollars.
What a wonderful opportunity to show off great cooking skills, be a part of this community event, and compete for some good prize money! Call 254-445-3422 with any questions.
