A Tie at the Cajun Cookin’ Challenge

Tuesday’s Portland Daily Sun includes a report on the unprecedented outcome of the recent Cajun Cookin’ Challenge: a tie between Silly’s and Bayou Kitchen. The owners of the two establishments are pondering a second cook-off to determine the winner.

Silander said he wants to offer a challenge to Silly’s for a friendly cookoff to settle the matter.

“It’s a really busy month for me next month, but I’ll think about doing a callout and see if Silly’s wants to do something as far as a challenge goes. What I would try to do would be sell tickets, have say 25 or 30 people, five judges, maybe somebody from Louisiana … and all the proceeds would go to the Katrina Fund,” he said.
