New Mexico : Artisanal Food Competition for Grants County Residents (Open to Amateurs & Professionals)

I've been eager to visit Curious Kumquat in Silver City after reading about it on this Board. It seems like an interesting place -- an unusual combination of food locally sourced or personally foraged by the chef, and then prepared with some interesting semi-molecular gastronomic techniques.

Anyway, they're holding a competition to find the best food artisan -- professional or hobbyist -- in Grants County. The announcement is on their Facebook page: , or you can contact them at .

For this competition, they define artisan food as including but not limited to: "confections, flavored vinegars, pickles and chutneys, salsas, preserves and jams, wines and beers, cured or dried meats - essentially any food that has been treated to have a shelf-life." Please share with anyone you think might be interested.

  1. PS: I guess that should be Grant County.

    1. Ninrn, have you heard of the NM made yogurt, somewhere down around those parts? Someone told me about it last night at a dinner party but I can't remember the name.

        No, I haven't heard of any made-in-NM yogurt. If you find one, I'd love to know about it. I wonder why some of the goat dairy farms here, like Coonridge or Old Windmill, don't make yogurt. Maybe they can charge so much more for cheese that it's just not cost effective.
