Williams Nursery Hosts Successful Salsa Competition

[slideshow_deploy id=’62340′]

 On Saturday, August 2, 2014, Irene Hernandez traveled from Sacramento to participate in the Williams Nursery Salsa Competition.

“I have known the owner Marcie for years,” said Hernandez, “When she told me that she was having this event, I thought it would be great to come out and support her.”

Little did Hernandez know, she would win the ‘Judges Choice’ award.

Using her grandmother’s traditional salsa recipe, Hernandez kept it simple and stuck to tradition.

“I watched my grandmother make this recipe for years,” said Hernandez, “It has a fresh right out of the garden taste.”

The judges were, Williams Mayor Pat Ash, Viki Osborne, and Colusa County Sheriff-elect Joe Garofalo.

“It was very hard deciding a winner,” said Garofalo, “Hernandez’s salsa was very traditional with a great texture, flavor and heat.”

The judges had the difficult task of choosing between the twelve entries.

“It was a very hard decision,” said Garofalo, “however Hernandez’s salsa really stood out.”

Hernandez was presented with a trophy.

Several dozen customers browsed the horticultural offerings of the Williams Nursery as they each took the chance to cast their vote for his or her favorite Salsa.

Shortly after all the votes were cast, the people’s choice was announced.

Cheryl Theriault of Colusa received the majority of the people’s vote receiving the cash pot prize of $66.

“I am excited with the support and turnout for the first year,” said Marcie Voorhees, proprietor of Williams Nursery, “we hope to do this annually.”

Williams Nursery plans to host a Chili Cook-off in the Fall.

“I would like to thank everyone who attended the event and the judges for taking the time to come out and judge the entries,” said Voorhees.

Located at 4001 Husted Road, Williams Nursery is open Tuesday – Saturday from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm.
