  6. Bring on the beans, greens and cornbread and you’ve got what can be called a culinary heritage cook-off!  With this, "The 4th Annual Beans, Greens and Cornbread Cook-off Competition," the Delta Cultural Center (DCC) continues its celebration of this intriguing dimension of the region's cultural heritage.  It has been said that not even music is as distinctly characteristic of the Delta as the spreading of a feast of native foods before a gathering of kin, neighbors and friends!  So, join us as we once again applaude the unique tastes of the Arkansas Delta.       

  7. Each year, cooks from throughout Arkansas-- cheered on by public spectators who will also sample the dishes-- compete in this cook-off.  Mark your calendar for Saturday, April 25, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.  The event will be held in historic downtown Helena,  Now in the final stage of planning, the exact venue location will be announced soon.

  9. Celebrity judges will choose winners in three categories: "Best Beans,"  "Best Leafy Greens"  and "Best Cornbread" offerings. And, in addition to the judges’ picks, the audience will select one overall best to receive the "People's Choice" award!  Come and taste!

  11. Anyone can enter the competition, and everyone is invited. A family-friendly favorite, admission is free to contestants as well as spectators. But registration is required to compete in the contest. Registration deadline is Friday, April 24.
