Call for Contestants: PACT to host Kielbasa Cook-Off Feb. 24

TOLEDO: The Polish-American Community of Toledo (PACT) is looking for contestants for the 2019 Kielbasa Cook-Off to be held on Sunday, February 24, 2019, from 1 – 6 p.m. at the St. Clement’s Community Center, 2990 Tremainsville Rd., Toledo.

The Kielbasa Cook-Off features homemade kielbasa from old family recipes and allows the public to sample the special kielbasa recipes and vote for their favorite.   Amateur kielbasa makers from all over the area compete for the title of Kielbasa “King” or “Queen”.   The event was last held in 2017 and nearly 700 people attended as ten teams battled for the bragging rights.   The teams of Polska Pryba and Zbilski Kielbasa tied for First Place and were crowned Kielbasa Kings.

Contestants can also receive cash awards and / or trophies for their efforts.  The competition is open to anyone that makes their own kielbasa. Commercial entries will not be part of the cook-off.

“People in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan are so proud of their ethnic heritage.  Most families have those special homemade recipes that have been passed down from generation-to-generation.   PACT is looking for best homemade kielbasa recipe.   This is a friendly competition.  We want to taste that secret family recipe for kielbasa,” said Tom Pruss, event chair and PACT board member.

There will be plenty of beer, sweet & sour cabbage, coffee cake, and Polish delicacies to go along with the kielbasa. Admission is $5 per person and $3 for PACT members. Money raised by the Kielbasa Cook-Off will go to fund PACT’s Capital Campaign to help fund the development of a Polish Cultural Center in the Toledo area.

PACT would like to hear from interested contestants no later than January 26, 2019.   Amateur kielbasa makers who are interested in participating can contact Tom Pruss at 419-320-2396 or PACT board member, Rozanne Swemba Nitschke at 419-944-5312, or email PACT at info@polishcommunity.org.
