Just a reminder that the first Collard and Cornbread Cook-Off is scheduled for tomorrow, January 26, from 11:00 a.m. –3:00 p.m. at Lenny’s Market in Americus. The event is sponsored by the Americus Rotary Club and Americus Times-Recorder.
Perry Wellness Center is entering a professional team into the competition, and we will prepare collards grown on our premises, along with our mouth-watering cornbread recipe.
Admission is only $5 for adults at $2 for children. Your entry fee will entitle you to sample all the greens entries, as well as cornbread and desserts. You also can vote for the People’s Choice award – not that we have any suggestions on that count… All entries will be judged on color, seasoning, texture, aroma, and overall taste.
It promises to be a beautiful day – perfect collard-tasting weather. We hope to see you there!
