The Cast Iron Weekend

The Cast Iron Cook-Off® has always been more than a cooking competition…….it’s a celebration of food featuring the creativity of West Virginia’s finest Chefs. It’s also an opportunity to celebrate and preserve the culinary heritage of our state and the small farms that are so vital to sustaining the local, farm-to-table movement.

Over the past decade, the Cast Iron Cook-Off® has evolved into a premier statewide event that blends consistent tradition with changing formats and venues. The 2017 Cast Iron Cook-Off® continues that evolution by partnering with the Winter Blues North Farmers Market, hosted by the WVU Extension Service Small Farms Center and the Morgantown Farmers’ Market Growers Association. The dual event will be held Thursday, February 9th at the Ruby Community Center, Mylan Park.

The Partnership.The Winter Blues Farmers Market annually features a host of products from West Virginia’s small farms…..produce, meat, woolen, wood and other farm-raised items. Last year, over 500 people attended the event, which also included restaurateurs and local musicians. The Cast Iron Cook-Off® brings an exciting new element to the event, and the Winter Blues Farmers Market brings a large, new audience to the cook-off!
