Tribal Observer bonus coverage "Taste of the Rez"

Joseph V. Sowmick - August 24, 2015

In an effort to provide bonus coverage, Team Observer joins the Andahwod Continuing Care Community and Elder Services as they offered a “Taste of the Rez” on Aug. 21.  The home made efforts of three master chefs competed for bragging rights and gift cards while judges rated the soups on an independent point based system. 


The eleven soup connoisseurs included Duane Pelcher, Joe Kequom, Phyllis Kequom, Sue Kequom, Mike McCreery, Marilyn Bailey, Dolly Rueckert, Vanessa Sprague, Jennifer Lindstrom, Jeff Colwell and Joe Sowmick. 


Andahwod Assistant Elder’s Advocate Estella Halliwell announced the first place winner of the hotly contested contest (pun intended) was Barb Sprague with her vegetable soup creation.  The second place honors went to Carole Tally and her potato soup entry while Dianna Chamberlain took third with her traditional wild rice mushroom soup. 


Please congratulate our winners if you see them around the Rez and maybe they will share their award winning recipe with you (or maybe not).
