The 2021 Poteet Strawberry Festival visitors got a taste of what’s great about Poteet at the “Taste of Texas” Food Show on Sunday. The Poteet Rotary Club Pavilion was filled with beautiful and delicious strawberry treats baked by local kids ages 5-18. Winners of Berry Best of Show, Best of Show, Grand, Reserve, and 1st and 2nd place moved on to be sold at the auction after the judging. Food show classes included: all cakes, cheesecakes, all cookies and candies, yeast breads and quick breads and pies.
Berry Best of Show winner was Connor Sparks, son of Megan Sparks, with his Strawberry Cheesecake with Oreo Cookie Crust.
Best in Show winner was Kayli Kennedy, daughter of Poteet FFA Advisor Jeff Kennedy and Stacey Kennedy, with her Strawberry Angel Fruitcake.
This year’s show, which raises money for scholarships, brought in a total revenue of $26,450.
Look for a full story in next week’s Farm & Ranch section on all the winners and buyers, add-on amounts and the total raised.
