Published 6:10 am Monday, December 20, 2021
SALISBURY — Rowan County 4-H annually holds a 4-H Food Show. However, this year we changed it up a bit and instead offered a 4-H Holiday Bake-off. Youths pre-registered, baked their item at home and then dropped it off for judging. We had 19 total entries.
Toi Degree and Angela Thrailkill judged each entry on food appearance, taste, holiday packaging of entry and the recipe included with the entry.
Results of the bake-off are:
