Carolann Foster of Frankfort, NY is the Grand Prize winner of the Fly Creek Cider Mill & Orchard Foodie Recipe Contest with her Pulled Pork BBQ Pizza recipe. Carolann’s recipe bested Horseradish Cheese Corn Chowder to win last week’s final round of visitor tasting ballots. “The tally was pretty close but Carolann’s recipe pulled head on Sunday,” said Bill Michaels, co-owner of the Mill.
In addition to winning prizes at each level of competition Foster won the Grand Prize including a VIP Tour of the Culinary Institute of America and a $250 gift certificate to be used at any of their student-run dining facilities plus, a $150 Fly Creek Cider Mill gift card and signed cookbook.
This winning pizza recipe is easy to make with slow-cooked, pulled pork, fresh ramps or green onions topped with Fly Creek Cider Mill 1856 BBQ Sauce and their famous, New York State, Mill-aged, extra-sharp cheddar. “I decided to use this recipe because my family absolutely loves it and we all took a part in making it. Using fresh wild ramps (leeks) in the springtime adds some extra flavor plus foraging for them adds more family fun,” says Carolann. “I am honored to share this recipe and my love for the Fly Creek Cider Mill with others!”
A very special thank you to the Culinary Institute of America for thier help with the grand prize.
