Calling all cooks!


Bring your best tomato dishes to the Stockton Farmers Market on September 12, 2010 at 1:00p.m. and compete to win great prizes, including the complete set of Canal House Cookbooks, a gift certificate to the Cookery Ware Shop, and a Market Basket including locavore items from vendors at the market (including a gift certificate from my own Half Pint Kitchen ice cream and sorbet stand — I recommend cashing it in for some Salted Caramel.)

There will be four categories: Best Savory Tomato Dish, Best Sweet Tomato Dish, Best Tomato Drink, and Best Overall.  Judging will be done by some super-foodies in the area, including Melissa Hamilton of Canal House Studio. Space is limited, so reserve soon. It’s $10 to enter (all money goes to the Market Music Fund). Hope to see you there — I’ll be snapping photos of the winning dishes to show off here on Jersey Bites.
