"Pots, Pan's, & Politicians" ... And The Winner Is?

"Pots, Pans, and Politicians" week is wrapping today as I announce the winner of the celebrity breakfast cook-off . All week I have watched Vermont's top politicians cook breakfast before a live camera and now it's time to pick the "best of show". Not my first rodeo, picking the winner is never easy. WCAX's judging categories are: taste, creativity, originality, and presentation. After watching current LT
Governor Phil Scott, former VT Governors Jim Douglas, Howard Dean, and Madeleine Kunin, it is clear they all enjoy cooking but a quick course in TV food styling might have been helpful. Seriously, we had great fun and it was truly a pleasure to be a part of this historic cook-off. There are no hanging chads and a recount will not be necessary. Know how dog owners tend to resemble their pets? Is it possible that people cook like their personalities?
