Cooking contests abound at State Fair

The Missouri State Fair is approaching quickly. Opening in Sedalia on Aug. 12 and running through Aug. 22, the State Fair is not only about rides, live entertainment and eating good food — it’s about cooking, too!

Grab your skillets and oven mitts because there are plenty of opportunities for cooks to show off their skills at the fair. Some lucky cooks could even win some money for their culinary skills. National contest coordinator Cyndi Harles describes these contests as a positive experience for everyone to enjoy.
