United States Dutch Oven Championship Cook Off on July 8, 2005
The Days of '47 will showcase the 2005 United States Dutch Oven Championship Cook Off at Wheeler Historic Farm on July 8, 2005. Ten world-class teams will compete for the coveted title, preparing a main dish, bread and dessert in cast iron Dutch ovens.
"This event is the perfect complement to the Days of '47 activities," said Todd Carter, event organizer and International Dutch Oven Society member. "We hope to convert the more than 10,000 expected spectators to Dutch oven cooking."
Each team at the competition will compete for the title of US Champion and a prize of $1,000 cash. All teams will share additional product prizes worth more than $10,000.
The event begins at 2 p.m., with an awards ceremony at 7 p.m.
"The finest Dutch oven competitors in the world are invited to this year's event," Carter said. "Their creations combine skill, talent and an element of artistry to create dishes that you would find on a menu at a five-star restaurant."
Camp Chef, a Logan, Utah-based manufacturer of Dutch ovens and high-end outdoor cooking equipment, is the event's title sponsor. Wheeler Historic Farm is located at 6351 S. 900 East in Salt Lake City, Utah.
