Tons turn out for Tasting Bee

March 8, 2012

Lunch was served at the annual North Dakota Winter Show Tasting Bee on Wednesday at the National Guard Armory on Winter Show Road.

With everything costing only a quarter, the line for change stretched out the door shortly after the two-hour event opened at 11 a.m.

“We had 50 rolls of quarters; we have one roll left but a lot of people bring their own,” said Marge Bessette of the NDWS Women’s Division, which puts the Tasting Bee together.

While hundreds turned out for the popular event, Bessette said it is still not the largest affair the division handles.

“They’re all so different,” she said. “Yesterday was the Hoedown, which was huge. But then we have the ladies luncheon, the antiques and the craft show. Each one has their own individual flavor,” she said.

Many of the booths where extravagantly decorated, with the Litchville Clovers 4-H Club taking first place for the best decorated booth, an award judged by the Women’s Division. The Clovers had donned Mexican costumes to serve their Southwest Pasta Salad, and interesting blend of penne pasta, onions, peppers, black olives, cheese and crushed corn chips with other ingredients.
