Our sweet vs. savoury cookoff was held at Flatland on the 23rd of February — the last cookoff held there was the previous February! The theme was to take something usually served sweet and make it savoury, or vice versa. We had a couple new attendees, which is always welcome.

Jen: "ridin' dirty" handmade parsnip gnocchi and oyster mushrooms sautéed in herbs & garlic, with porcini cocoa crumble and ginger pear sauce
