State Fair of Texas
George’s blue ribbon winning Apple-Pear Praline Pie won out of 44 entries at the State Fair of Texas, the largest fair in the country. Among George’s friends and family, he known as the “go to guy” for all things baking, cooking and canning. They “put in their requests” after each fairs winnings and tell him, “I want that pie for my birthday” or “please make me those brownies for Christmas.” George tells us he has 500 winner ribbons in his collection and won the “best competitor” title three years in a row at the fair. In 2009, he celebrates his 20th year as a State Fair of Texas competitor. When not in his kitchen or at the grocery store, George likes to garden and fix up antiques.
