8th Annual "Txerri-Besta" Pork-fest Contest
Go Pig or Go Home! The Txerriki Contest entries can include Tripota, Morcilla, Chorizo and Lukainka. The rules: EVERYTHING MUST BE HOMEMADE! (no store bought for these Bascos!) If you are interested in participating please email firstname.lastname@example.org
FOUR CATEGORIES (enter in one or more)
Bring 5 lbs of your homemade:
2) lukainka (with and without paprika) and/or
4) Pate (Pork only)
They will be judged in a blind taste test that will determine the winner in each separate category. Those winners will walk away with a trophy and bragging rights for a year. Please--no store-bought samples: we want to encourage and showcase the long tradition of Basque cooking, and respect those who put an effort into making their own entries.
Participants can be either organizations or individuals. Those interested in participating should contact Valerie Arrechea (email@example.com). Please help to get the word out!
