Contestants dashed around the fair to compete in our Chopped-style Run for the Fair contest tonight, and the results were delicious.
Six fair guests were given two mystery ingredients, puff pastry and bacon, and $10 in food vouchers to make an appetizer. Contestants had 30 minutes to shop for food from vendors and then had 15 minutes to create their dishes.
The creativity was flowing!
In first place: Laura Whisler
In Second Place: Bouakeo Mertz
In Third Place: Erik Mortensen
Dishes were awarded based on 50% creativity and 50% appearance. The top three received monetary prices. First: $75, Second: $50, Third: $25.
Winners from left to right: Laura Whisler, Bouakeo Mertz, Erik Mortensen.
Fair guests will have another opportunity to partake in this fast-paced culinary competition on Sept. 22nd at 7 p.m. The contest will be dessert themed.
