| Woman Of The Week | THE ART OF COOKING is one most women acquire, but Marie Dutton has the envious talent of creating her own recipes, then winning the honor of competing in nationwide contests with them. Last week Mrs. Dutton returned from ocean City, Md. where she took part in the 1971 National Chicken Cooking Contest. As the Iowa finalist, she competed against 52 state winners from throughout the country. Although she did not win one of the prizes with her recipe for Chicken Doll-Up, she and all the other state winners received $100 and an all expense- paid trip to Ocean City. Marie went by plane from Mason City to Baltimore where the ladies were taken by chartered plane to Ocean City's Harrison Hall Hotel on the ocean. Arriving Thursday, they became acquainted with the other contestants and on Friday morning were taken by bus to the beautiful new convention hall where the contest rules and regulations were explained. Following this briefing session each went out to buy the groceries required for preparing their prize winning recipes. Lunch on Friday was at the "Chicken Grill" where they could watch the chicken as it was being cooked on a 650-pound grill. Following lunch they returned to the hotel and at 2 p.m. had the choice of a scenic boat trip or a helicopter night over the city. Marie took the boat trip and found it extremely fascinating. They saw men fishing for soft shelled crabs and the tour guide took them slowly past a marshy area where beautiful homes were built up on stilts in the water. He also commented that the insurance rates were lower there and you had no lawns to mow! From touring the Sound they went farther out into -the ocean and watched people who were marlin fishing. Friday evening a banquet was held at the Phillips Crab House where crab was more delicious than she had ever tasted, and prepared in many, many different ways., SATURDAY WAS the big day! The ladies were asked to bring from home their own cooking utensils for the contest and some came with quite a bundle. A young married girl from Maryland acted as a page for her group of six or eight ladies to help solve any of the problems that might arise. All of the stoves were brand new and as all cooks know, there's a lot to be allowed for in this department, alone. Each of 52 contestants were required to prepare the same item two different times from the same recipe, with the first dish for judging to be ready by 11 o'clock, and the second for display. Everyone had to be completely done by 12 noon. Tension? Of course there's tension— even for one as experienced as Marie Dutton. With 52 tables in one long row down this huge convention hall, one has quite a walk to see all of the dishes on display. In judging, taste counted first, but Marie felt that very definitely the "dress up" garnish also played a mighty important part. These picture-pretty and delectable dishes were, indeed, a sight to see, and after she had walked the length of the display, Marie went to the Chicken Grill for a quiet lunch. EARLIER THAT morning she had a pleasant surprise, while garbed in her cooking apron and extremely busy, a red-haired gentleman came up and said he understood she was an Iowa gal. He was a former Emmetsburg resident, presently an official with the chicken company, she remembers that his last name was Nelson and he told how they used to play St. Cecelia's in sports. While lunching Saturday noon at the Chicken Grill, a lady, her daughter and son-in-law came in and sat opposite her. in exchanging conversation she found that Humboldt was the older woman's home and she had been in Maryland for the winter with her daughter. She also met many people who had been to numerous places throughout Iowa, as well as Algona. The ladies again dined in the evening at a smorgasbord at convention hall where she had never seen such fabulous food. Shrimp prepared in every possible way, baked sliced turkey breasts, baked ham, all kinds of salads and dessert was tiny strawberry, cherry or blueberry tarts that melted in your mouth. The whole affair was preceded t>> a eiAlUij] hour m with the monetary gift and a beautiful silver plate with her name engraved and given to her from the chicken industry. She returned to Iowa by plane Sunday with 52 new staunch and loyal friends and an autographed winning recipe from each one. She also had waiting at home, a letter of congratulations from Governor Ray. it had arrived the day she left for Maryland. Now Marie and her husband, John, with their three sons and families are on their annual family outing at Cass Lake in Minnesota for two weeks where she spends the majority of her time cooking. It is now that they get their fill of fried walleye. It will be a busy summer, as they plan to entertain three nieces from Arizona, company from England and then look forward to their golden wedding anniversary in November.
