The Cow Parade is right around the corner, and with it the first annual Bake-Off. This year’s theme is “cake” (we’re calling it a “cake-off”). The entries have been rolling in, and boy do they look tasty! But no contest is complete without adjudicators, so without further ado, it’s time to meet the judges:
Cannady-Brown is a self-taught baker and owner of Lawrenceville’s Gingered Peach bakeshop, named to honor her grandmother. Open since last July, the shop was an instant success, boasting individual pastries at wallet-friendly prices. This busy lady has a background in restaurant management and marketing, and is a mother of two.
Pierce is a US Army Iraqi War and combat veteran, a businessman, and entrepreneur who truly loves New Jersey and all its people. He is currently campaigning for the governorship, and is possibly Cherry Grove Farm’s biggest fan – we found him favoriting our posts on twitter!
Professor Shaloo is a Jackson, New Jersey native, and one of Cherry Grove’s own. When she’s not taking care of our sheep and chickens, she teaches biology at Georgian Court University and Brookdale Community College. With a PhD in molecular and cell biology, Shaloo is no slouch in the kitchen or the classroom.
If you haven’t signed up for the cake-off, there’s still time. Send your name, email, phone, name and description of your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org. There’s no cost to enter, and you’ll be competing for fame and prizes!
