'225 Dine': Red Stick Farmers Market gears up for Tailgating Throwdown
It's that time of year again—time for Baton Rouge's tailgating greats to put their money where their mouth is and sign up to participate in the BREADA Red Stick Farmers Market's annual Tailgating Throwdown challenge Oct. 20. Competitors must use a minimum of two local ingredients from the Red Stick Farmers Market to create their dish, and can prepare a maximum of two different recipes to be judged in the competition, including one meat and one vegetarian. The entry fee of $100 covers $20 in Farmers Market tokens that teams can use to purchase local ingredients from vendors on-site. A panel of judges will select the winning dishes and present awards for Best Use of Local Ingredients and Best Overall Experience, among others. Teams will also serve their dishes to event attendees, who will select the People's Choice Award. If you'd rather just eat than compete, come along to enjoy the tasty food, Bloody Marys and mimosas, as well as live music and festive atmosphere. A kids' zone will help keep young visitors busy. All proceeds from the event support BREADA's community outreach program. Visit the BREADA website here for all the details; and read the rest of the new 225 Dine e-newsletter here.
