Pudding Hollow Pudding Festivla
This event takes place only once every five years so you won’t want to miss it. The day will begin with the arrival of puddings, which are due at 11 a.m. Lunch will take place at 12:30 or thereabouts, and our entertainment will get going around 1:30 (when everyone has eaten and the judges have made their difficult decisions).
Our judges this year will be Dennis Picard, a living-history professional who specializes in puddings and ice cutting; Charlotte Rutledge, manager of the test kitchen at King Arthur Flour; and Kathleen Wall, colonial foodways culinarian at Plimoth Plantation.
Do check out our roster of wonderful prizes. And the menu to the right will give you lots of information about where we are, what we do, and how you can participate.
If you’re planning to submit a pudding, you won’t be left to twiddle your thumbs until lunch. Our neighbors at Headwater Cider will offer hard ciders to taste, and we can direct you to local sites like the Hawley Bog, the Old Town Common, and the Charcoal Kiln. If you’re NOT planning to submit a pudding, feel free to come at noon and join us. The day offers plenty of fun even for non-cooks.
By the way, if you DO plan to enter the contest, bring along a cooler. You may win a food that needs to be preserved.
