This is the latest opportunity in Michigan to highlight locally grown and sustainably raised food! Michigan Envirothon will be hosting the Inaugural Michigan Sustainable Stoup Competition on Sunday, October 25th, 2009 in Grand Ledge Michigan.
This is a statewide cooking contest open to individuals and restaurants in Michigan with a focus on local, sustainably raised foods and it’s for a good cause: a fundraiser for the Michigan Envirothon Program.
Envirothon is a non profit statewide environmental competition that gives high school students outdoor, hands on experience with nature, agriculture and the ecology that surrounds it. These are the young adults who will be the next scientists, foresters, wildlife biologists and farmers. For more information on Envirothon and to learn how you can get involved locally visit: www.michiganenvirothon.org.
Stoup can be a soup or a stew, or even chili, as long as it is cooked in a pot with locally raised food, it can be entered!
What could be better than Sustainable Stoup? A Sustainable Stoup Competition along with a Michigan wine, hard cider and beer tasting! We will have samples from Michigan wineries and breweries and even a few hard cider makers along for the event to give everyone attending the full circle Michigan experience. The goal of this event is to promote sustainable agriculture, farmers markets, backyard or community gardening and Michigan beverages. It will be a tantalizing, tasty competition for the best stoup in Michigan.
Winners will be selected by a panel of guest judges. Attendees will vote for the People’s Choice award. Winners will be featured on the Select Michigan and the Michigan Envirothon website and be announced via a press release.
A $500 cash prize will go to the Best Stoup in Michigan winner and we have prizes for each category, including the People’s Choice Award.
Artwork from Michigan artist Linda Sprout Broughton will be available for purchase at the event. Her pieces are featured in the picture above.
