Maple Sugar Sunday Is Sweet Fun Day! Stamford Museum & Nature Center–Stamford, CT

3 Mar

Our decadent and adventurous Saturday Sample Bowl sadly had to come to an end, but that’s nothing compared to First County Bank’s Maple Sugar Sunday at Stamford Museum & Nature Center!  Taking you back a bit to First County Bank’s Chef’s Challenge, Marcia Selden Catering and David’s Soundview Catering dropped the maple bomb on SoNo Baking Company and Cafe.  Now, this Sunday, March 6, 2011, we have the showdown, rain or shine!  Marcia Selden Catering won last year, so we think everybody is wondering if she’ll continue her streak or if we’ll have a new Maple Sugar god crowned atop a sugary and slippery Mt. Olympus.

So, here are the deets:

Sunday, March 6
11 am -3 pm, 12-1:30 for Chef’s Challenge
Members:  $5—-Non-members:  $10—-Family PLUS & Above Members:  Free—-Children 3 & Under:  Free
Expect to see and experience everything you ever wished for as if you died and went to maple heaven:

1)  Chef cook-off!  This is where it’s at for us.  We’ll enjoy the fruits of the these talented chefs’ labor and vote for our favorite maple-inspired dishes.

2) Samples of maple syrup.  We seriously cannot have that fake watery “breakfast” syrup anymore.  Maple is just too good and just too rich and smooth.

3) A “maple syrup at home demonstration with Tap My Trees, LLC.”  We’re interested to see what that’s all about.  Will we learn how to make our own syrup? :)

4) A pancake brunch.  Okay.  Two amazing words together, united, for our pleasure.  Pancake?  Check!  Brunch?  Check!  It’s from 11-2 with an additional fee.

5)  Maple syrup snow cones, sweet treats, and pints (YES!) of their own maple syrup!  We’re feeling fat now just thinking about all the food that we’re going to digest on Sunday, but you know what?  It’s for the good of mankind.  Somebody must be your ambassadors of taste and goodness, or else who would spread the word?

6)  There’s also many fun family stuff too, but we’ll be pigging out.

So, who will win?  We’re rooting for the chef that gives us the most food!  If you see us there, Kristien and I are the couple passed out by the goat pen in a sugar coma.  If you take our money, at least have the decency to wake us up before you run away.
