Pollock Resident Wins National Contest

Posted: Updated:

POLLOCK, La. – Recently, the Louisiana Sweet Potato Commission announced that a Pollock woman placed in the national contest called the Sweet Rewards Recipe Contest. 

Lisa Talberg of Pollock, La., placed first in the side dishes category for her "Cheesy Sweet Potato Mac" recipe, earning her a $500 cash prize.

The entries were grouped into five categories: appetizers, side dishes, main dishes, desserts and professional. Students from the culinary arts program at Delgado Community College in New Orleans participated by preparing the final recipes for the contest. Each category in the contest had a first, second and third place winner, as well as an overall grand-prize winner.

The judges chose the winning recipes based on their overall flavor, texture, visual appeal and creativity.

The winners' names, recipes and photos are featured in Louisiana Cookin' magazine's October issue, and on the magazine's website.

Recipes are also posted in the recipe section of the Louisiana Sweet Potato Commission's website at www.sweetpotato.org.
