If you think you have a winning recipe using cornmeal as an ingredient, you should enter the historic Yates Mill County Park's 7th annual Cornmeal Cook-off on Sept. 15.
The cook-off is part of the park's annual Harvest Celebration to show off its restored water-powered gristmill. It's a family friendly event from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. The event includes wheat weaving, corn husk dolls, vintage cars and tractors, bluegrass music and a scavenger hunt for the children.
There also are tours of the gristmill for $3 to $5 per person with corn-grinding demonstrations.
If you are interested in competing in the cook-off, you will need an original recipe that uses at least 1/2 cup of cornmeal. For details on how to enter the cook-off or about the Harvest celebration, go to www.wakegov.com/parks/yatesmill/.
