Side Dishes: Vermonters to compete in cooking contest

Published October 27, 2010 at 5:59 a.m.

Unless you’re Wolfgang Puck, cooking is rarely the best way to make a buck. But sometimes a skilled home cook with a winning recipe has a shot at a jackpot. Five Vermonters are currently in the running to win $10,000 as part of the Hood New England Dairy Cook-Off.

At 7:30 a.m. this Saturday, Joanna Scott of Milton will prepare her Complete Breakfast Muffin for a crowd gathered at the Ocean Gateway waterfront terminal in Portland, Maine. Each of 30 semifinalists will cook a dish in one of five categories, with the winner of each round becoming eligible for the grand prize. Entries will be judged on taste, presentation and creativity, as well as use of Hood products.

One Vermonter will cook in each of the five categories. In the appetizer and side-dish round, Thomas Young of Swanton plans to prepare his Rockin’ Reuben Meets Red Hot Cuban. Fellow Swanton resident Jean Gagne’s German caramel-apple tart with bourbon whipped cream sounds like a contender. Here’s hoping Vermont’s entries are the cream of the crop.
