You have to love a contest where everyone gets to eat the entries in the end, which is exactly what happened Wednesday during the 2015 Edible Book contest held annually at the Markosian Library on Salt Lake Community College’s Taylorsville Redwood Campus.
This year’s winners were: Most Humorous, Krystal Rose; Most Literary, Isaiah Montoya; Most Edible, Kristina Fox; Most Artistic, Stephen Brown; and People’s Choice, Nicci Rivetti and Russ Bridge (this category is judged on non-tasting elements only). The People’s Choice “Smaug Cake” was made with white cake, Rice Krispies, and fondant icing and was adorned with chocolate coins.
Judges this year were: Sandra Kikuchi, SLCC director of Faculty Services and Study Abroad; Susan Neal, Studio 5 TV cooking contributor; Nirali Patel, SLCC student senator over diversity and Inclusivity; Tiffany Rousculp, SLCC associate professor of English; and Gordon Storrs, SLCC student advisor and chair of the Art Committee.
The annual contest is open to SLCC students, staff, faculty and administrators. For more information visit the SLCC Libraries Edible Books Festival and Contest link.
