Culinary Tent at Celebrate Commemorate Memorial Day 2017

The Culinary tent is a great resource to learn about foods grown and produced locally in Seneca County and the surrounding Finger Lakes area.

The public is invited to taste delicious samples, while getting new recipes and nutrition tips.

This year we have two competitions. On Saturday there is a CCE Seneca Healthy Recipe Contest and on Sunday, 4-H is holding a Jr. Iron Chef Competition.
