Shuptrine’s Twisted Products announced that the grand prize winner of the Shuptrine’s Twisted Products Recipe Competition is Barbara Golder for her Twisted Pierogies.

The competition contestants were charged with creating an original Shuptrine’s Twisted recipe using one of the Shuptrine’s Twisted Products - Twisted Relish or Twisted Marinade. The competition culminated with a cook-off on Tuesday at the beer market, SturmHaus on Houston Street. Six finalists came prepared with their Twisted recipes. 

Competition grand prize winner, Barbara Golder, won $250. Runners up were Ben Grizzell and Jeff McBrayer for their Twisted McGrizzells Meat and Beverly Jacks for her Twisted Sausage Balls. Mr. Grizzell and Mr. McBrayer won a case of the Shuptrine's Twisted Product of their choice and Ms. Jacks received a three-pack of Shuptrine's Twisted Products. Cook-off guests were invited to taste the finalists' recipes, and the suggested SturmHaus beer pairing, to help select the winner.

Shuptrine's Twisted Products plans to host another Twisted competition in the spring or summer. Shuptrine's Twisted Products are located at local stores in Chattanooga, Lookout and Signal Mountains, Cleveland and Collegedale.




Rhonda On The Prowl: Main Street Meats - The Best Burger In Town

I had been in meetings all day for work and hadn’t had a bite to eat. My next meeting was in an hour at the Chattanooga Choo Choo. I was already in the area and decided to pop into Main Street Meats. Some neighbors told me the other day they go there at least twice a week. They said the burger there is the best in town—better, even, than Tremont Tavern’s. It was just before ... (click for more)

Mexican Cuisine Tucson Style

We went out west, southwest really, to visit friends in Tucson several months ago. I’d promised my friend, former Chattanoogan, Mike Deitch on several occasions that I would be present at one of his three children’s Bar or Bat Mitzvah.

Donna Horn: I'm Not A Good Ole Boy

Roy Exum continues to reload his poisonous pen.  Yesterday he wrote some untruths about me and some of the other board members that just happen to be educators as well.   For the record, one cannot run for school board if one is a teacher at the time of the election.   He said that I was still teaching when I was on the school board-not possible.  I retired in ...

Roy Exum: Vote ‘No’ On Vouchers

I fully believe that public education in Hamilton County is the single most important opportunity that challenges us today. Over the weekend the new website for the ‘Chattanooga 2.0’ initiative went up and every parent who has a child in our public system should make it “required reading.” You can find it at www.chatt2.org. Please sign up for updates because a lot of us need to ... (click for more)
