Pesto Making Contest at North Haven Gardens

by Crave Staff

The people at North Haven Gardens invite you out to visit and also participate in the Second Annual Pesto Party. Summer time means pesto and what better reason to gather than to sample some of the best home cook’s renditions of the smooth sauce that goes with virtually anything.

Drop by the North Haven Gardens website for an application.  Note that entries must be submitted Saturday, July 16th between 9am & Noon. Please be sure to send at least 1/4 cup of pesto to judge. Please attach the recipe written or typed.  Home made pestos only. You do not need to grow your own herbs, although they think you should. Judging is based on texture, flavor and creativity. You can use basil, thyme, sage, peppers…whatever sounds good.

If you are not the cooking type you may also stop by to watch the judging which is final by 1:00.  Chad Houser from Parigi is the celebrity chef judge along with craveDFW Steven Doyle.

At 1:00 join Kay Nelson NHG Garden Coach for her “Growing Basil & Making Pesto!” class.

1st Prize: $100 NHG Gift Card + Parigi Restaurant Gift Card
2nd Prize: $75 NHG Gift Card 

3rd Prize: $50 NHG Gift Card
