Mennonites aren’t often known for having a particularly fierce sense of competition, but once a year we make an exception here at PMC. Our annual Cook-Off pits the finest makers of soups, breads, and cookies against each other, with impressively delicious results. Last Saturday, about 50 people gathered to taste test this year’s submissions. The votes were close and some judges were seen returning to the table several times to finalize their decisions, but in the end, winners were declared and awarded the traditional crowns.
For the best soups: Steve Clemons, Alisha Rinefierd, and Jaime Horst.
And for the tastiest cookies, Caren Swanson, Rebecca Walter-Toews, and Jaime Horst.
The Horst family made an impressive showing this year! If you want to try to dethrone them next year, we suggest practicing your recipes at potluck – first Sunday of every month, with plenty of willing tasters!
