Do you have a favorite dish featuring maple? Enter your torte, flan, taffy, pork loin, cheesecake, yam, bread pudding, parsnip, or polenta recipe in the UVM Libraries’ first-ever Maple Cook Off.
On Sunday, March 28, from 4-6pm, the University of Vermont Libraries will be hosting a Maple Cook-Off to celebrate the launch of its Maple Syrup Research Website, created by the UVM Libraries in partnership with the National Agricultural Library. The doors will open at 4 PM. The Growlers, an acoustic trio that plays upbeat rock, blues, and country music, will provide musical entertainment from 4-5pm, while the judges are evaluating the entries. Guests can browse maple displays and children’s activities. After the judging is complete, all attendees are invited to sample the buffet of maple delicacies. Winners will be announced at 5:30pm.
Confirmed judges include: Suzanne Podhaizer, Seven Days Food Editor; Sarah Lyons, maple producer, Square Deal Farm; Sue Bette, owner of Bluebird Tavern; and Kate Turcotte, UVM ecological agriculture major and organizer of the Vermont Food Summit.

The Maple Cook Off is the first in a week of events that include the Bailey/Howe Library exhibit It’s Always Maple Time in Vermont, and “A Party in the Woods: Sugaring, Community, and Celebration Under a Changing Sky,” a talk by Middlebury College Professor John Elder on March 31st at 5:30 PM.
