    GENERAL INFORMATION

    Gulyás can be made with fowl, pork, veal, beef, fish or vegetable. The more unique the better! Each chef must provide a minimum of 16 quarts (4 gallons). This event is intended to be outdoors. Each chef must provide their own kettle and, if possible, a means to heat the gulyás—either propane burner or Sterno. No open fires (wood or charcoal) are permitted. If necessary, a burner will be provided. In the case of rain, the event will take place in the basement of St. Emeric, and warmers will be provided. Chefs must arrive by 11:00am. Upon arrival, chefs must sign in with Bill Kolosi. Chefs may begin to set up as early as 8:00am. The kitchen at St. Emeric will be available on Saturday, June 15 if any chef would like to prepare their soup and store it overnight. Each chef will share a table with one other chef. Signs will be provided with the chef’s name and the name of the gulyás. Decorations are optional—and encouraged! No items may be sold for cash without the committee’s official permission. Each table will be provided with sampling bowls, spoons, napkins and ladles. Chefs and their helper will serve their own samples. There will be a centrally-located table with additional supplies. We ask that the chef's assistant help in keeping their table stocked with supplies during the event. Please contact Bill Kolosi at 330-990-9175 or John Megyimori 440-871-2796 if you have questions.

    JUDGING

    There will be two awards: PEOPLE'S CHOICE - Chosen by ballot. Each paid attendee will receive 1 ballot, which must be placed in a marked ballot box. JUDGE'S CHOICE – A panel of judges will be given samples of all gulyás entries blindly. Judges will be given a separate ballot and tasting will occur in a closed room, separate from the event. The event is scheduled from 12:00 ~ 3:30pm. Ballots will be accepted until approximately 2:30pm, and winners will be announced at approximately 3:00pm. Decision of the voting is final and without appeal. All participants receive a certificate. Winners receive a large, handmade, engraved wooden spoon.
