The Big Cook 2010
Years ago, John’s Dad and crew decided to set one special day aside each year to celebrate one of life’s true pleasures. That is, sharing extraordinary food with our friends.
The BIG COOK is growing each year. We are especially pleased that the BIG COOK is evolving into a venue that connects our guests (always free of charge) to local farmers and producers that support this special day. This year we created a flyer that introduces our ‘COOKS’ and PRODUCERS in order to better acquaint them with our guests. Also new for this year, a dessert contest to benefit NOFA-NY, the non-profit Organic organization of New York. For added fun, we held a special auction to benefit the FFA. The Big Cook is not a competition although it’s not uncommon for the cooks to try to out-do each other while attempting to create the crowd favorite dish.
Thank you NOFA- NY for donating the great prize bags for the winner and reserve winner of the Dessert Contest!! Pictured is winner Linda Rutherford who won with her delicious peaches and cream pie! She is presented the Golden Pie Plate award by Ed Eaves, last year's King of the Apple Pie! Also included in this photo is Abby Eaves our dessert contest manager! Reserve winner was Kelly Saner with her wonderful carrot cake served with homemade ice cream! Both beautiful ladies are from Branchport NY!!!
Thanks to all of the contestants for entering your great desserts! All proceeds from entry fees went to NOFA-NY!
