Greenbo Lake Chef Is A Winner At Kentucky State Fair
GREENUP, Ky. – A chef at Greenbo Lake State Resort Park was a winner at this year’s Kentucky State Fair Cast-Iron Chef Competition.
Kendra Clark, an assistant chef who has been at Greenbo Lake for three years, won her cook-off and received a blue ribbon and plaque. Her winning dish, which she had 30 minutes to prepare, was a New York strip steak with sautéed onions and peppers that was accompanied by a pasta consisting of linguini, summer squash and green beans. The ingredients are kept a secret until the cook-off begins each day of the fair. Audience members serve as judges.
“Kendra represents many of the chefs we have in the state park system,” said Parks Commissioner Gerry van der Meer. “They are well-trained and consistently provide excellent meals for our park guests.”
Clark, an Ashland native, graduated at the top of her class with a degree in culinary arts from Ashland Community and Technical College in 2006.
Greenbo Lake features the Jesse Stuart Lodge with 36 rooms, a convention center and Anglers’ Cove Restaurant. The park has a 225-acre lake for boating and fishing, tennis courts, 25 miles of multi-use trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding. The campground is open April 1 through Oct. 31. Greenbo Amphitheatre features musical concerts and plays during the summer and fall.
