The Glenwood Cook Off is a community event, that is sponsored by the Glenwood Community Park Board. Proceeds from the event benefit the Park and a scholarship fund. The Senior Center and the San Francisco River 4-H Club will benefit as well.

Glenwood's 13th Annual Dutch Oven Cook-Off
Saturday, April 11, 2015
9 a.m. - 4 p.m. (Daylight Savings Time)

Glenwood Community Park, Catwalk Road (Route 174), Glenwood, New Mexico 
(1 hour north of Silver City; 45 minutes south of Reserve) 

This age old method of outdoor cooking is a piece of living history.
Come to Cook and practice your skills or see how Dutch Oven cooking is done.  Everyone, experienced or amateur, individual cooks or teams are welcome to enter.

Cooks can register to do single pot (entry fee: $15) or three-pot (entry fee:$30) (consists of main dish, bread and dessert).

There are three Divisions: 'Fancy Fixer', 'Camp Cookie', 'Tenderfoot'

Tickets for the popular "Tasters' Delight" go on sale the morning of the Cook-Off. You will get 'tastes' from many of the Dutch Oven entries and served by the Cooks. Serving Lines begin at 2:15 p.m. $7.50 per plate.

This year's cook off is dedicated to Gale Moore, publisher and founder of the Glenwood Gazette and Forever Frontier Magazine. Since 2004  a group of Gale's friends were the committee members who invested their time and energy to help the event grow in popularity, number of cooks, food, and fun. At the helm was Gale, who was  loved and respected by many in the Southwest for bringing the small communities together. She died suddenly in August, 2014.

Proceeds from the event benefit the Glenwood Community Park/Arena and The Gale Moore Scholarship Fund for Journalism.
