With 16 dishes from which to choose a grand prize and other winners, the three judges at The Crescent-News 2016 Recipe Challenge had a lot of tasting to do. The Recipe Challenge was held on Nov. 2 and was open to the public for the first time in the many years it has been held. Shown here are the judges hard at work with the guests in the back at the Defiance Eagles hall. The judges were Cheryl Buchhop (left), the grand prize winner from the 2015 Recipe Challenge; Charles Evans (center), the chef at the Laurels of Defiance; and LeeAnn Mendoza, a multiple grand prize winner of Recipe Challenges.
