Think your scones, granola, candy, gluten-free muffin, chocolate cake or apple pie are to die for?
Then be a part of the Baking Booth at the San Juan County Fair. It’s become a favorite spot for sharing recipes, discussing baking techniques and getting to know fellow bakers.
Volunteers are needed as judges on Tuesday, Aug. 14 and to staff the booth for short shifts Wednesday through Saturday, Aug. 15-18.
Yes, you taste entries as a judge. Yes, you can serve up entries to fairgoers as a booth volunteer. No, you don’t have to be a master chef to participate.
Just check out the department rules (especially bring entries in a resealable plastic bag to keep down the fruit flies), plan your entry and enter on time. Full details can be accessed at http://www.printonyx.com/Printonyx,_Inc/Fair_Booth.html.
Last year more than 40 men, women and children gave two to three hours and helped make the booth the best ever. Plus, we had more than 200 entries in adult and youth categories.
Let’s top that this year.
