A favorite aspect of the annual Slow Food Des Moines Food Fest is the friendly potluck “cook-off” competition. Contestants bring out their best recipes, using their favorite local ingredients, and put the smackdown on the competition.
The competition is pretty fierce, because the contestants are, without fail, mighty fine cooks.
The best part? Everybody (from professional chefs, to kids, to eager bystanders) gets to feast on the most delicious food that Central Iowa has to offer.
What’s your culinary secret weapon? Do you make the best deviled eggs in Des Moines? The crunchiest cookie in Clive? Spiciest baked beans in Bondurant?
Do you make a dish that is not alliterative with the town where you live?
Put your apron on, and make up a delicious dish (or two!) for the September 8 event.
