The Great Hudson Dessert Showdown
The Hudson Hospital is hosting a fundraiser for the Community Healing Garden. Sample the best desserts in Hudson from three of the top local chefs. A panel of judges will sample and vote on the best dessert. But you’re invited to sample along with them.
Participating chefs include Chef Adam of Buddy’s Bakery, Chef Charles of St. Croix Baking Co. and Chef John of Sweet Beet Bakery.
The new garden will “provide a space for our entire community to connect and heal, including a special area for families who experienced pregnancy or infant loss. Your donations are needed to create the garden – including a pergola, benches and customized engraved pavers – to honor our loved ones.”
The $175 event ticket includes a basket filled with all three chef-crafted desserts plus two bottles of wine. It’s a generous serving that can be shared by four people.
Baskets will be available for pickup at Hudson Hospital before the event on Thursday Nov. 4, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Friday, Nov. 5, 3-5 p.m.
The showdown will commence on Friday, Nov. 5 at 6 p.m.
Yesterday was National Farmers Day
The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection celebrated National Farmers Day, yesterday, Oct. 12.
“National Farmers Day is an opportunity for all of us to recognize and celebrate the impacts and contributions of Wisconsin farmers,” the press release said. “Our state is fortunate to be home to more than 64,000 farms on approximately 14.3 million acres that produce a wide variety of high-quality products. These products include dairy, ginseng, cranberries and other specialty crops. Now more than ever, it is critical that we invest in Wisconsin farmers and I am proud that our state has found ways to do just that.
From getting dollars in the hands of farmers with direct farm payments, or connecting people to local foods, or funding mental health programs in the 2021 Biennial Budget he just signed, Governor Tony Evers is committed to supporting our farmers. It is important to lay the groundwork for the future of Wisconsin agriculture, and we have seen Governor Evers and the Wisconsin Legislature agree on some of these important investments.”
