WCC Annual Corn Soup Cook Off

Posted 15/09/14 in EVENTS

The annual Corn Soup Cook-Off is returning to the Woodland Cultural Centre on Saturday, November 14, 2015 at 5:00 PM.  The Centre is thrilled to announce this year's cook-off begins a partnership with the De dwa da dehs nye>s Aboriginal Health Centre in offering this favoured community event.

If you make some impressive corn soup then please plan to enter the cook-off.  Monetary prizes will be awarded for first, second, and third places as voted on by a knowledgeable audience of corn soup aficionados.  Competitors can register to enter by calling the Woodland Cultural Centre [519-759-2650, extension 223] by November 10, 2015.  On the evening of the competition please drop off your corn soup at 4:00 PM to the museum - the first 10 registrants to bring in their corn soup will receive a $25.00 grocery gift certificate.  Each contestant will need to provide approximately 10 quarts (a large pot full) of corn soup for the event.  It is the decision of each competitor whether they wish to lye their own corn or purchase lyed corn - whatever you think tastes best.  Traditional corn soup or dried corn soup are both welcome to enter.  

If you enjoy eating corn soup or have never tried this local delicacy, plan to come out on November 14, 2015 at 5:00 PM.  For the low price of $5.00 per person, you will receive a Woodland Cultural Centre or Aboriginal Health Centre mug (you choice and get to keep), and an official ballot.  Taste testers will then proceed to sample all the entries (perhaps, twice), fill out and submit their ballot so we can declare the winner of the Best Corn Soup in North America (and the world!).

Arrive hungry and leave full!
