GREAT RECIPES BELOW!
Today we’re celebrating cornbread! Some of the best meals of my childhood involved a plate with a hot wedge of cornbread on the side, steam still coming off of it, a little butter on top. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the National Cornbread Festival in South Pittsburg, Tennessee, and if you’ve been missing out! Huge crowds of people descend on this wonderful little town for a weekend that includes :
- National Lodge® Cast Iron Cornbread Cook-off
- Cornbread Alley (sample various cornbread recipes)
- Live Music throughout the festival
- Arts and Crafts from area vendors
- Tours of the Lodge Cast Iron Foundry
- Cornbread 5K Race
- Tours of historic South Pittsburg
- Classic Car Cruise-In
- Carnival Rides
- and of course, a Cornbread Eating Contest!
I have been thrilled to be a judge at the cornbread cookoff for several years now, it is one of the events I look forward to most each year. If you join us, head on by the judges area during the cookoff (a program will tell you when and where) and tell someone in a Martha White shirt to give me a holler so I can come out and hug your neck!
