If you missed the first culinary battle, the competitors (and generous partners) will be at it again on Sunday, September 27 making delicious, spontaneous creations out of local foods supplied by our favorite Clarksburg Farm vendors: Scenic View Orchards, Valencia’s Produce, and Abundant Grace Farm.  Come watch the fun, taste the food, and vote for the winner!
