Our friends at Checkmark had their annual cook off at the studio last night. This year the challenge was Salty versus Sweet.
Three judges selected the grand prize winner, and the guests selected winners from each of the categories of sweet and salty. Our esteemed judges were Tim Brennan of Cravings, Liz Schuster of Tenacious Eats, and last year’s winner Libby Davidson.
The winning entry was from Scott Hall, who made chocolate covered slim-jims: Ultra Redneck Gourmet Chocolate Meat Stick. Team Sweet winner was Julie VanMater with her Kahlua Heath Bar Crunch Cake. In the Salty category there was a tie between Megan Hecke’s Spinach Artichoke Mini Pies and Team Crooks/Keller’s Tot-tini.
In addition to some fun food, the photo booth proved to be popular. Here is an example:
