                                     CULINARY
                                               Department IV
            Superintendents: Virginia Nadeau, Perry, and Glynis Ellis, Hawkinsville
                     Assistant Superintendent: Sandra Sessoms, Perry
            ALL DIVISIONS OF THE CULINARY DEPARTMENT WILL BE IN THE
                         MILLER-MURPHY-HOWARD BUILDING.


                                            A REMINDER:
           All baked goods are brought before the Fair begins, with one exception. PIES will
           be accepted and judged the first Friday of the Fair, October 9. ALL OTHER
           baked goods will be received Wednesday, October 7, between 2:00 p.m. and
           8:00 p.m. Judging for these will be done on Thursday, October 8. Before the
           Fair opens, Culinary exhibitors will be able to drive to the Miller-Murphy-Howard
           Building to park and unload. Signs will be posted. As in the past, your ingredients
           and/or dish will serve as your ticket into any gate for culinary contests held during
           the Fair. Remember: Family members over age 10 must buy a gate ticket.



                                       COOKS WHO CARE
             Georgia Cooks for charity will again take place as a part of the 2009 Georgia
             Living Program. More than $450 was raised for charity last year as a result of
             exhibitors’ generosity. On Thursday afternoon, October 8th, and continuing
             Friday, October 9th, a bake sale of items entered in competition will be held
             in the Culinary Department.
             Should you not wish to participate in the BAKE SALE, your item(s) will be
             available for pick up between 5:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. on Thursday, October
             8, and 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. (pies, 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.) on Friday,
             October 9.



           Winners’ ribbons will be available for pickup during the Fair or will be mailed to the
           winners after the Fair.

           A recipe may not be used in more than one contest; i.e., a peach pie cannot
           be entered on pie day and the same recipe entered again in the “Sweet
           Georgia Peach” contest.


             Have you been an exhibitor every year since the first Fair in 1990? We’re looking for
             some special folks who will have exhibited in all 20 Fairs to help us celebrate our 20th
             birthday this year. If you believe you will qualify, let us know! Call Lora or Sandy at 800-
             987-3247, ext, 553.

  The basic rules of food safety must be followed. All meat, fish, poultry,
  milk, egg, and vegetable dishes must be kept cold (below 40 degrees F) or
  hot (above 140 degrees F). This means that ice chests or other insulated
  containers must be used when transporting or holding food. For information
  on food safety, contact your County Extension Agent.
