Kathy Caldwell and Nancy Burgess Obern grand champions at cook off

Pioneer Days cookoff grand championsKathy cookingMember Kathy Caldwell and assistant Nancy Burgess Obern participated in the Frontier Days Dutch Oven Cook-off at the Walla Walla fair, August 31, 2013.  The girls were thrilled that their team, called Goin’ Dutch won Grand Champion.  They also took home 2 people’s choice awards for dessert and main dish.  This Grand Champion win has qualified them to go to the International Dutch Oven Society, World  Championship Cook-off next March in Utah.   It’s a sure thing this fall will include some major brainstorming to see if they can plan a trip to Utah.  The categories and dishes cooked were; bread – Red Hot Buns, main-dish – Braised Short Ribs served with Creamy Polenta, dessert – Mama’s German Chocolate Cake. 

Congrats to team Goin’ Dutch from MCTAMA!

 FYI- Kathy is also a talented fiddler and participates in many club music activities.
