Thank you to all our participants. We hope to see you next year!
This is the event that started it all, a salute to marinated meat on skewers, the pride of Broome County! The Cooking contest was part of the Balloon Rally's original conception: a spirited Cook-off of a local food and a balloon rally. Anyone can join the fun and competition, applications are available and you simply need an original Spiedie recipe to enter.
There are three classes of competition, and one to four categories within each class. An open class for the public, a celebrity class for local celebrities to compete with one another, and we have recently brought back the Restaurant class for local restaurants to join in the fun of the competition. The open class competes in four different categories: Poultry, Pork, Beef or Venison, and Lamb. There is also an award for best presentation.
Our host this year is Jim Ehmke from NewsChannel 34. We bring in local dignitaries to judge the open class and have our own esteemed Chef's association to judge the other classes.
The fun starts at 1pm on Sunday and will be covered by local TV and Radio Stations. Don't miss the fun. Forms are available on line or call Spiedie Fest for information (607-765-6604) and forms.
