Cook off

In years past, this event has been one of the largest Cook-Off Events in the region and we need your participation to continue its success.  We invite you to participate in the Hook N Cook off in several ways… enter a TEAM, purchase a VENDOR booth and/or become a SPONSOR of this fun event. 

By entering your team could be crowned one of the best Fish Fry cooks in the country or the winner of the Spirit and People’s Choice Award. Each team is to prepare fish, coleslaw and hushpuppies to be judged by our panel of judges.  Each entry will be judged on aroma, looks, taste and aftertaste. Plus new this year - the first 10 cooking teams to sign up will get their cooking team entry fee waved - that's a $150 saving.

Also, each team will need to prepare the same for the public.  The public will be selecting the People’s Choice Award by dropping in their vote at their favorite booth.  Also, every team is given the opportunity to sell tickets in advance and the money for the tickets becomes votes for the People’s Choice Award.  So we challenge all teams to sell, sell, sell….talk up this event and work with us toward hosting the best ever Hook N Cook-Off!
