SHELBY COUNTY CHEF WINS STATE PORK COOKING CONTEST
Jeff Helms
334-320-8069
July 30, 2001

Winners in the Alabama Farmers Federation's 2001 Pork Cooking Contest were, from left, Frances Schofield of Shelby County, first place; Calvin Freeland of Mobile County, second place; and Wayne Bassett of Lee County, third place.
"Birmingham, Ala." Tender Pork Fingers accompanied by three homemade dipping sauces earned Frances Schofield of Shelby County top honors in the Alabama Farmers Federation's Pork Cooking Contest July 30 at the Federation's 29th Annual Commodity Producers Conference in Birmingham.

Mrs. Schofield, who teaches family and consumer science at Shelby County High School in Columbiana, said the recipe is an adaptation of one her family's favorite wild game dishes.

"We do deer tenderloin like this and have found that the buttermilk and garlic marinade really makes the meat tender," she said.

As for the dipping sauces, Mrs. Schofield said she developed her tangy Barbecue Sauce years ago when, as a newlywed, she didn't realize she could buy barbecue sauce in the store. When she decided to enter the Pork Cooking Contest, she developed two additional condiments, Honey Butter Sauce and Lime Honey Sauce.

As the winner, Mrs. Schofield received $500 from the Alabama Pork Producers, which sponsors the contest. Taking home second-place honors and $300 was Calvin Freeland of Mobile County for his Cheesy Grilled Loin. Wayne Bassett of Lee County placed third and won $100 for his Terrific Tenderloin. Seventeen other chefs from around the state received $25 for winning their county Pork Cooking Contests.
