Submit Your Pickles, Jams, and Liqueurs to the Eat Real Fest Contest
|Bring us your pickles. And jams, jellys, krauts, beers, and liqueurs.|
Taking the place of the county fair, then, is Oakland's Eat Real Fest, which will be held this weekend in Jack London Square. As part of the event, Eat Real and Punk Domestics have teamed up to organize contests for jam and preserve makers, picklers, home brewers, beekeepers, and booze artisans (to see the guidelines for submitting honey and spirits, click on the tiny "2" at the bottom of the page). Eat Real is accepting submissions tomorrow (Sept. 20) through Thursday at its offices at 65 Webster St., Oakland.
Come Saturday, SFoodie will be there as judges. Both SFoodie Editor W. Blake Gray and I will be on the pickle panel, so bring us your pickled peaches, your kimchi, and your bread-and-butters for us to relish (your relishes, too!). No blue ribbons here -- the winners earn Whole Foods gift cards, books, schwag, and as much glory as they want to claim for themselves.
