Dutch Oven Cook-off is main attraction at annual event
– The 2015 Caledonia Days and Dutch Oven Cook-off brought locals and visitors alike to the Rios-Caledonia Adobe in San Miguel on Sept. 26.
Vendors and Dutch Oven Cook-off participants arrived at the Adobe early in the morning to set up shop and start the fire under their kettles in anticipation of visitors that roamed the grounds for nearly six hours on Saturday.
Despite experiencing temperatures in the high-90s, the event enjoyed a large crowd throughout the day that “took a step back in time to enjoy bygone ways of bygone days.” From Dutch oven cooking and tastings, various food and drink offerings to music, skilled artisans and craftsmen, small engines and rock collection displays, there was something for everyone at this family-friendly event.
