Plans for datil pepper festival are heating up
The University of Florida Extension Office will host the Datil Pepper Cook-off Festival from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 4 in conjunction with the St. Johns County Home and Garden Show.
Currently, the extension office is seeking restaurants to participate by preparing both an appetizer and entrée made with the region’s datil pepper.
Restaurants that participate will be judged and prizes will be given for the entrée and appetizer in two judging categories: Professional and People’s Choice.
The People’s Choice Award division will be judged by the participating public at the festival.
Tickets for this division will be sold the day of the event. Judging will be from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The Datil Pepper Festival supports local agriculture and features “growing local and selling local.”
For information, call Family and Consumer Sciences Agent at the St. Johns County Agricultural Center Joanne Cooper at 209-0430 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
