Default Harvard Fall Festival - No Parsley

Of the 40+ teams going, how many already have a crate of parsley and won't read the KCBS ban?

Lettuce anyone!

September 15, 2009

Temporary Rule Change - effective immediately - Parsley



Due the recall of parsley shipped to 10 different states, which have been recalled due to the risk of salmonella contamination and food poisoning in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin. The Board of Directors has issued the follow advisory and rule change for all KCBS sanctioned contest held between this date and September 20, 2009.



The use of all types of parsley (including but not limited to curly, flat leaf, Italian or any other type) and cilantro is prohibited and shall constitute an illegal garnish and therefore be disqualified.



The decision to ban the use of parsley and cilantro is made out of abundant caution and concern for the protection of all participants including cooks, judges and visitors, as well as the effect parsley use could have upon a judge whom was concerned the product they were judging could be contaminated. This decision is made in the interest of fair competition.



This ban is only for the period stated and will not effect any other future competition unless the FDA or other authorities issue additional warnings.

Guys, get in touch with the promoter / organizer of the event. THEY need to send
something out to the teams, ASAP, whether it's a phone call, emails, etc.

Also, I'm of the personal opinion that they should (if it's legal) as a result of this ban,
disallow any garnish whatsoever. This way folks wont have to go out and purchase
lettuce only to find out 2 days from now that it's banned also....

JMHO.

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.

I think KCBS should of mandated (or funded) the organizers to have cases of green leaf available so this whole thing isnt on the cooks to deal with.

Good deal. At least 1 promoter/organizer is on the ball! We're signed up
for a contest on the 25th/26th and I'm curious as to how all of this is
going to play out. I have a baaaaad feeling this is going to go the route
of the tomato scare earlier (ie. prolonged).

I do wish they'd (KCBS) just ditch allowing garnish altogether... Fix short
term, and fix long term. It would end it.

Mind you, I'm a certified judge. I had another get all in my . . . feces
about this, saying garnish isn't taken in to account, blah blah. I know,
and he's right. HOWEVER, there's always the judge who is just amazed
at how pretty it all looks and score higher, because of the garnish.
Take it out (the garnish), and that argument is moot/over.

I suspect much of the whining is from folks who have tons of leftover parsley they want to use up...
