Contest will pick Bama’s Best Peach Cobbler

As peach season begins, Alabamians can submit nominations for the restaurant with the state’s best peach cobbler in a Facebook competition through April 15.

Sponsored by the Alabama Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association (AFVGA), the contest is searching for a fan-favorite restaurant, farmers market or other public eatery serving tasty cobbler.

To submit a nomination for Bama’s Best Peach Cobbler, comment on the Alabama Farmers Federation’s Facebook post with the restaurant name and its town.

“Peach cobbler is an iconic Southern dessert and we think the best cobbler is made with fresh Alabama peaches,” AFVGA executive director Hunter McBrayer said. “Bama’s Best Peach Cobbler allows us to highlight our hard-working peach producers and the restaurants whose menus feature one of Alabama’s favorite fruits.”

A panel of judges will sample cobbler at the final four restaurants in late April. Judges include an Alabama peach producer, SouthernBite.com food blogger and recipe developer Stacey Little and a surprise TV personality.

Bama’s Best Peach Cobbler will be announced in May to kick off peach season, which generally runs through July.
