Saturday - Shortbread  Competition

In our Shortbread Competition, we have 2 categories.  Traditional and Gourmet. The traditional shortbread is the simple buttery, crumbly, basic 3 ingredient cookie we all know and love. 
The gourmet shortbread is created when people get creative, taking the basic recipe and adding spices, glazes, and other add-ins to make something very very tasty. 

Come by the Celtic Cuisine Tent on Saturday and help judge the People's Choice winner.

Sunday - Scones  Competition

In our competition, we have 2 categories, Traditional and Gourmet. 

Traditional is  similar to what Americans know as a biscuit, but is more dense and crumbly and 

often paired with jam. 

Gourmet Scones are a little more adventurous, sometimes even savory.  The range of add-ins is limitless, from chocolate, fruit or other sweets to non-traditional add-ins like cheeses, meats, veggies, or nuts for a savory twist. 

Come by the Celtic Cuisine Tent on Sunday and help choose the

People's Choice winner.
