CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR 2018 WINNERS!
Golden Toothpick Award & Grand Prize
Entry: Panda Compressed
Patricipants: Abi Norwood, Ryan Norwood, Kaitlyn Peot, Erica Meninno
Panda Compressed is a play on American-Chinese take-out food that we all know by the iconic boxes. We added a Baltimore touch to our design by putting the Patterson Park Pagoda on our boxes. The food included a mini mug of oolong tea, General Tso chicken, vegetarian egg rolls, and teeny fortunes cookies with even tinier fortunes inside. Our goal was to create something quirky, unique, and tasty!
Entry: Will You Mary Berry Me?
Paticipants: Morgan Spaner, Emily Salinas, Pam Hugi, Sara Payne and Shanti Flagg

Entry: Martine's Polish Buffet
Participant: Martine Richards
A Polish buffet with tiny cups of borscht, vegan seitan kielbasa fried with onions and sauerkraut, and pan-fried pierogi with three different fillings -- potato and homemade twarog cheese, mushroom and sauerkraut, and lentil puree.

Entry: Winter Wonderland
Paticipants: Dana Brenner, Cora Hofsetter, Daniel Viete, Grace Kim, Hannah Peters, Joanna Meade, and Robyn Vance
Winter Wonderland - a tiny gingerbread village of mini-chalets and A-frame cottages each adorned with whimsical icing, shiny sprinkled dots, a fondant tree, and a baby candied flamingo lawn ornament, in true Baltimore style. All tucked into a snowy mini-mountain, your wintery retreat is complete with a small cup of cocoa.
#ForbiddenSnacks - Tide Pods
Participants: Blake Rose, Griffin Casey-Miller, Jessie Xander, and Jenny Revilla
