CSA SMACKDOWN

We're having another CSA Smackdown this fall! The WSCSA Smackdown is a culinary competition composed of teams of 1 or 2 people. The competition takes place during normal pick-up hours. Teams will have 30 minutes to create an original dish using only their CSA share and 3 herbs or spices that they may bring. Staple pantry ingredients and cooking implements will be provided. Winning team will be granted a fantastic prize and has potential to advance to the Just Food Smackdown finals.

This year's event will take place in October. As we finalize details, we'd like to know which members are interested in participating or just coming to watch! Let us know by filling out a quick survey here
