World Fair Field includes international baking contest

Donated baked goods, even those not judged, will be available for monetary donations to help support the festival
Sep 12, 2018

The first International Baking Contest will be held in support of the World Fair Field International Festival Sept. 22 in Central Park.

All manner of home-baked goods made from recipes of international origin will be accepted to be judged by local baking celebrities: Curtis Goudy, head baker at Fairfield Hy-Vee Food and Drug Store; Stephen Boss, local foodie and producer of “Great Taste” radio and television show; and Eric Rusch, of Breadtopia and an online renowned bread baking enthusiast.

Three prizes in each of two categories — pastry/dessert and bread — will be awarded in a blind taste-test judging. The judges will be looking for superior quality in appearance, flavor, and texture.

Breadtopia will be donating prizes from its store of kitchen goods and freshly milled organic flours. Other donors are also likely to sweeten the pot of awards.

This is also an opportunity to donate baked goods even if the baker does not want to take part in the contest. All baked goods involved, whether being judged or not, will be accepted as donations to help support the festival, and will be given out for monetary donations to the cause.

Anyone wanting to take part can find more information on the website https://worldfairfield.org/international-baking-contest/or by emailing the following information to fairfieldculturalalliance@gmail.com: Subject: WFF Baking Festival, name, address, email address, phone number, name of recipe, recipe origin, list of all ingredients used. and state if the baked goods are to be judged in the baking contest.

Bring the baked goods to the baking table by 1 p.m. Sept. 22 in Central Park.

The World Fair Field International Festival is brought about from support from Fairfield Cultural Alliance, Fairfield Convention & Visitors Bureau, Humanities Iowa, and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
