ExpoCulinaria, a lip-smackig event - you be the Judge

Posted in Rushford Village Arts & Culture

By Team ExpoCulinaria

Saturday, September 7 is circled on calendars and hungry culinary fans are getting their tickets early for the 2013 ExpoCulinaria—an experience of taste in Rushford, Minn. Relished from the sellout success of 2012, ExpoCulinaria is on entertainment menus from 4-8 p.m., rain or shine. Located in downtown Rushford in the beautiful Rushford-Peterson Valley, the location is idyllic for an energetic and fun-filled, scrumptious array of events. The evening promises to be brimming with sampling and strolling through participating restaurants and businesses, a wine and beer tasting, live jazz music and a chef competition. The highly anticipated gastronomic experience will also coincide with the 1 September weekend of ‘Taste of the Trail,’ which highlights the cities of Rushford, Rushford Village and Houston on the Root River Trail System.

The delectable big top show of the evening will be the Chef Challenge, ‘Bring It’ to the Table.’ The culinary competition is between two professional chefs who will create mouthwatering appetizer, entrée and dessert plates that will utilize surprise ingredients. 2013 will be ‘the battle of the women chefs.’ The chef’s plates will be sampled and judged on a point-scale for presentation, creativity and taste by a panel of three guest judges.

Meet ExpoCulinaria judge number one. Marilyn Block of Goodview, Minn. maintains ‘hobby’ employment as Food Correspondent for Winona Daily News and serves as a Food Demonstrator for Winona Hy-Vee. She has served as Baked Goods Superintendent at the Winona County Fair from 1992 – 2010; being honored to be placed in the Hall of Fame and serving as King and Queen at the fair with her husband Alton. The couple is parents to three, grandparents to 10 and great-grandparents to five. ‘I have always loved working with food and creating many new recipes. Cookbooks have been my biggest joy of reading material. This love of food has led me into heading and assisting with the publishing of numerous recipe books throughout our area. I have had the privilege of baking many wedding, birthday, and theme cakes and cookies for family, friends and factory working gals who didn’t have the time.’

Block has entered recipes in Taste of Home, Recipes to Warm the Heart from the Heart of America, volumes one, two and three, and has also attained blue ribbon winners from State and County fairs. In addition, she has .....
