Collard greens are a great, inexpensive source of nutrients, but we've all suffered through that sad bowl of green mush. But prepared with care, collard greens are delicious!
Find out for yourself this Sunday, Nov. 4, at the Second Annual Collard Greens Cook-Off, in Braddock. The event is sponsored by the Braddock Youth Project, and will be held at the Nyia Page Community Center, at 416 Library St., from 2-5 p.m.
Think your greens might be the best? For $5, enter the competition. Call 412-670-8722 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for info about submitting an entry. First prize is $250, with $125 and $75, for second and third place, respectively.
For spectators and those looking to get their fiber and Vitamin A on, $5 gets you your fill of greens, and you can help determine a winner. There will also be a 50/50, a raffle, a family portrait studio and more.
