Shiitake, Ginger & Pork Pot Sticker Soup
1st Place Winner, 2012 Kennett Square Mushroom Soup Cook Off
Kennett Square, Pennsylvania hosts a wonderful mushroom festival every September, the weekend after Labor Day! I participated in their cook offs for several years starting in 2010. This was the second time I won first place. You submit a recipe in early summer that is tested and pre-judged to qualify to be a contestant. You may only use 10 ingredients and have 1-hour to prepare. You have to bring all your own equipment and ingredients. (Besides a propane burner and a table.) After participating in the cook offs for several years, I was invited to do cooking demonstrations and even be a cook off judge myself!
