Provence Market Café Sets New Standard in WV Dining

Bridgeport, WV, April 21, 2006

Provence Market Café proudly announces the recent awards received by participating in the first annual Cast Iron Cook-off Competition and Culinary Weekend held at the Stonewall Resort in Roanoke, WV, April 7-9, 2006.

The Cast Iron Cook-off was coordinated by a planning committee of chefs and tourism leaders from around the state. Five of West Virginia’s top chefs were invited to participate and compete for awards in five different categories; Best Appetizer Traditional, Best Appetizer “Light”, Best Entrée Traditional, Best Entrée “Light”, and finally Best of Show. All teams were to be comprised of Chef, one assisting food professional and eight non food professionals.

Accompanied by Michael Brown, Penny Neeley, Stacy Ryan, Kathy Stump, Debbie Workman, Jennifer Lawson, Carla Engle, DeeDee Hatcher, and Betsy Spellman, Anne Hart’s Team Provence developed a menu utilizing traditional West Virginia products such as ramps, grits, moonshine, and pork with a contemporary twist to capture 1st Place in all five categories. “I am honored to have been invited to participate in this competition promoting West Virginia culture and especially thrilled with the outcome”, said Anne Hart, owner and team leader for Team Provence.

The benefits of this weekend did not stop with Team Provence. Two great programs benefited from the proceeds of the Cast Iron Cook-off; West Virginia’s own ProStart culinary program which introduces high school and technical students to the culinary world, and the Collaborative for 21st Century Appalachia which promotes traditional and contemporary Appalachian cuisine and culture while developing products and events that will further the Mountain State’s culinary image.
