 “The Country Roads Cook-Off” is a unique opportunity to put the spotlight on local foods and recipes grown right here in North Central West Virginia. Our food is a unique asset that we need to celebrate, share and market.

Come see multiple cooking teams participate in a cooking competition that features foods and recipes of the 19th century that reflect life in north central West(ern) Virginia of that time.

There cooking teams compete for a first prize award of $100, selected by our panel of judges, and an equal amount for the People’s Choice Award. Some teams may cook on a hearth while others will use an open cooking venue.

General admission is $10. Children 10 & under admitted free with paying adult.

The 2015 event was sponsored by Salem International University, Gtr. Clarksburg Visitors and Conventions Bureau and Prim & Proper
