Dutch Oven Cook-Off @ Cathedral Gorge State Park
Sep 16 @ 1:00 pm – 7:00 pm

DSC07816 Visit Cathedral Gorge State Park for an afternoon of delicious Dutch oven dishes!

Have a few amazing Dutch oven recipes up your sleeve? Then enter the Cook-Off!

Registration

Rules

Eligibility: The contest is open to individual or group cook/teams. Anyone under 16 entering individually must have a parent or guardian’s signature; teams such as Boy Scout troops will by covered by their official Boy Scout Trip Permit.

Entry Fee: Fees waived if you pre-register. $5 for each item entered the day of the event. Cash only.

Procedure: Individuals and teams may enter dishes in more than one category. Entries fall under one of four categories:
Bread product
Main Course (meat)
Vegetable/side-dish
Dessert

Entrants are responsible for providing all food and supplies needed for preparation of the entry, and for cleanup of their immediate area after cooking. The park will provide charcoal for cooking the food, unless the recipe must be started prior to 3:00 p.m. on the day of the Cook-off. It will be required for the individual or team to make a sign that tells the name of their food entry(s) and have copies of their recipe to share with the tasters. The sign should be no larger than 8-1/2” x 11”, and capable of being displayed in front of the food. If the food is spicy-hot, or has ingredients that some people are allergic to (e.g., peanuts), please list that on the sign.

All cooking must be done in a Dutch oven, and everything cooked on-site (that is, no pre-cooked items or ingredients may be used). Entrants are responsible for keeping refrigerated items cool prior to serving or mixing into the recipe. Garnishes, if necessary, should be kept simple; they should be kept refrigerated until time to serve.

For public health reasons, pets will not be allowed to be in the area during the Cook-off; and only those preparing the food will be allowed in the cooking area. Participants should practice proper hygiene and follow sanitary procedures, for hand-washing during handling of food, and for washing cutting boards, mixing bowls and any other utensils necessary during the preparation of the recipe. Tasting (for adjusting of seasonings) should be done only with a disposable spoon, no finger-licking.

Prizes are given for top three dishes in each category. Winning dishes are decided by a panel of judges. Event participants vote for their favorite dish, the winner receives the People’s Choice Award.

Everyone is here to have fun, and learn some new techniques and recipes!

Annual Park to Park Pedal – Extreme Nevada 100

The Park to Park Pedal-Extreme Nevada 100 Bicycle Tour includes three routes for riders of all levels:

100 Mile Extreme
60 Mile Double Jack
40 Mile Helix

Enjoy the miles of scenic beauty as you ride along Nevada’s first Scenic Byway, Highway 93. Peddle past the 1920’s mission-style depot in the railroad town of Caliente and through the historic mining town of Pioche. Tour through four of Nevada’s scenic State Parks: Kershaw-Ryan, Cathedral Gorge, Spring Valley and Echo Canyon. Take in the breathtaking view of Meadow Valley as you coast down the hill from Pioche on your way back to Kershaw-Ryan for a mouthwatering Dutch oven feast.

100 Mile Extreme
This ride is the most challenging with approximately 5600 ft of climbing; you pedal through four state parks, two old west towns, and up Pioche Hill. Since you went uphill on the way most the return is downhill!

60 Mile Double Jack
A more moderate challenge, this ride does include Pioche Hill which is approximately 1400 ft of climb in about 10 miles. Once you hit the old mining town of Pioche it is all downhill from there! You see two state parks and two old west towns along the way.

40 Mile Helix
For those of you who are looking for a shorter ride WITHOUT extreme hill climbs this is for you! This ride takes you to Cathedral Gorge State Park in Panaca, ending just before Pioche Hill. You see two state parks and the old railroad town of Caliente.

Support

Rest stops with a great selection of food and beverages are offered at Cathedral Gorge State Park, Miller Point scenic overlook, Pioche, Echo Canyon, and Spring Valley (lunch). For the 40 and 60 mile riders the lunch stop is back at Kershaw-Ryan.

Drop bags are available at the first three rest stops if you chose to discard clothing. First aid and technical support are provided at rest stops and on the course. And SAG support just in case!
