The first annual Gooding County Dutch Oven Cookoff is about to get underway. Get your Dutch Ovens out and find those hidden family recipes to cook up some great food to help local families in need.

Gooding County Dutch Oven Cookoff

It will be Saturday, December 3rd at the crossroads of Hwy 26 and Hwy 46. Everyone who wants to participate will make a main dish and side dish which can be breakfast, lunch or dinner. Also a dessert of some kind. Judging starts at 3 pm. The event is from 3 pm to 5 pm. Judges will decide the winner and after there will be a raffle and silent auction of items donated by various people.

Santa will be there so you can get a picture while you're there.
