Think your hot apple pie is the best? Make something with chocolate that can’t be beat?
The Pend Oreille County Fair can add some blue-ribbon bragging rights to your resume or at least line your wallet with a few bucks.
The fair features a hot apple pie contest for adults and youth. Deliver pies to the fair by noon on Friday, Aug. 14, and judges will be digging in by 2 p.m. There are cash prizes for both kids and grownups who place first, second or third.
Other contests include the Cookie Monster Contests for young bakers, as well as a new cupcake decorating competition. And then there’s the popular Best of Chocolate contest, with both youth and adult divisions.
The fair will be held Aug. 13-16 off Highway 20 in Cusick, Wash. There’s more information available at www.povn.com/pocofair.Good Food Films
The Moscow Food Co-op continues its “Good Food Film Series” with “Mad City Chickens” at 7 p.m. July 16 at the Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre in downtown Moscow, Idaho.
The co-op sponsors the monthly film showing, which is followed by a potluck of finger foods and a discussion. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and admission is $6 for the general public and $4 for co-op members.
“Mad City Chickens” is described by producer Tarazod Films as a “sometimes serious, sometimes whimsical look at the people who keep urban chickens in their backyards. From chicken experts and authors to a rescued landfill hen or an inexperienced family that decides to take the poultry plunge, and even a mad scientist and giant hen taking to the streets.
Future films include:
Aug. 20 – “King Corn”
Sept. 23 – “The Future of Food”
Oct. 15 – “Broken Limbs”
Nov. 19 – “Food, Inc.”
The Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre is located at 508 S. Main St. in Moscow. The Co-op is downtown at 121 E. Fifth St.
