Cabbage Cooking Contest at Westport Farmers’ Market 1/18

13 Jan
Cabbage was cool to cook with way before anybody ever heard of kale.  Yeah, we said it.  What you gonna do, huh?  But, the problem with cabbage is that it can be soggy or be off-putting if it’s not done right.  
cabbage from Microsoft Clipart Well, we’ll let Chef Wirt Cook from Redding Roadhouse and butcher-extraordinaire from Saugatuck Craft Butchery be the judges of that.  They’ll be the local celebrity judges at a cabbage cooking competition at the Westport Farmers’ Market on 1/18 starting at 11 am.  While we might not want to be around either Wirt or Ryan a few hours after the sampling (hopefully they take some Beano), you better stick around until noon when they’ll pick the winner.  That lucky duck will win a full cleanse system from The Stand Juice Company and the bragging rights as winner of the Cabbage Kibosh.  
There’s just one rule to follow:  entrants need to use cabbage from a local farm in their recipes.  When submitting your dish, make sure to indicate where you got your cabbage from and drop off your dish by 10:30 am.  Also, make sure that you e-mail Lori Cochran by 1/15 to reserve your spot in the competition.

    I like the cabbage in pretty much any form – but the sheer smell of it cooking – not an easy one…
