Contestants, Are you ready? Let the cooking begin!!
The idea of an Alltracks Cook off came from a trip we had last year whilst camping at Fish Creek. Sadly, COVID put a dampener on the original cook off date, but alas, we managed to have it.
The rules for the cook off was simple. Everyone had to prepare a meal or dessert. You can peel potatoes/onions at home but all mixing etc was to be done on site. Everyone judged each other. Prizes were awarded to the winners.
Don and Jane were first out with their Vada dish followed by Sean and Deb with their dip and crackers. One by one, dishes were placed on the table to share. Quite nice actually. Slow and steady stream of continuous food for people to pick on but by the end , we were all so full. Luckily there wasn’t more chefs in this outdoor kitchen.
Once everyones tummies were full, it was judgment time. Nomination forms were handed out. Drum roll please.
daa daa daaaaaaaa
First place goes to Sean and Deb
Second place goes to Gary
Third and final prize goes to Lin
Finally, to finish off the night, some yummy apple crumble, hot custard and Nutella pastries filled up what gaps we had left available from the main feast. Let’s face it, there is always room for dessert!
