SRAA food tent showdown results

The food inventory has been taken, the samples have been tested and the culinary staff have been grilled. After a period to digest the results (literally), a winner has been crowned in the Saratoga County Rowing regatta food tent showdown.

To be fair, this was sprung on the three contestants, Saratoga, Shenendehowa and Burnt Hills but I have always made every attempt to make the rounds during a regatta to ( introduce myself.

I knew the selection would be of high quality and be more than enough to sustain me through a hot Saturday of rowing action.

Let's look at our contestants:

Saratoga Rowing Association:
Without a doubt the trend-setter of culinary delicacies of regatta food. From humble beginnings of grilled cheese and spaghettios to quesadillas, wraps and the incredible breakfast sandwich.

Now the SRA has added it's new "Elvis Special", peanut butter, sliced bananas and honey on a wrap. For breakfast or for a healthy snack, this little diddy is a perfect fit for rowers and reporters.

Burnt Hills Rowing Association:

With grillmaster Tom Adey at the helm, its breakfast sandwiches, grilled ham and cheese, burgers and cheeseburgers for all, once, twice, all right, I'll take a third.

The culinary dad is retiring after this season and may soon rent out his spatula and BBQ lighter for pay after his son, Jordan, graduates.


Always showing class this Saturday was light fare under the Plainsmen tent with tortellini salad, potato salad, a generous offering of fruit and some decadent desserts for those with a sweet tooth.

I gave extra points to Shenendehowa for being the first food tent to be up and running this morning, huge after arriving at the site early.

Burnt Hills gets points for decor, chafing dishes and utilizing them for both hot and cold dishes. Burgers are always a quick way to this reporter's heart.

Saratoga, dear old friends, worried that they wouldn't have anything new, but the banana, peanut butter wrap hit the spot for a shot up the charts.

And the winner is.......

All of us!!!
You can't call one tent better than another because all of the food is madw with love...

And besides, I think I'm just going to continue to tabulate these results again for next year's SRAA nationals at Fish Creek where all three can have home field advantage.
