Ashland in Motion host’s first biscuit and gravy competition

ASHLAND — Competition heats up the weekend following the Super Bowl as Ashland in Motion hosts The Gravy Bowl, Ashland’s first biscuit and gravy competition, and challenges the community to get their gravy in the game and see how it measures up on the playing field.

The Gravy Bowl is scheduled for 10 a.m.-2 p.m.  Feb. 10 at Park Place, located at 1701 Central Avenue.

The event features biscuit and gravy sampling crafted by local restaurants and community organizations. Gravy entries are featured in three categories: sawmill gravy (meat gravy), country gravy (meatless gravy), and a freestyle category.

In addition to sampling, the event also features football-themed games and challenges.

Admission to The Gravy Bowl is open to the public; sampling is redeemed through ticket purchase. Tasting tickets may be purchased on-site the day of the event. Individual tasting tickets are $1 or six tickets for $5.

The Gravy Bowl is hosted by Ashland in Motion and all proceeds benefit future events and revitalization efforts.

Ashland in Motion is currently accepting applications for teams or businesses interested in competing in The Gravy Bowl cook-off. Entry fee is $25 for initial entry, $10 for each additional entry. Participants may compete in all three categories.

Participants may compete in a professional (“Seasoned Pro”) or amateur (“Home- Cookin’ All Star”) division. Entries will be judged by a panel and “Best of Show” winners will be selected from all three categories in each division. An overall “People’s Choice Award” winner will be selected by event guests. The participating team that displays the most spirit and best décor will be awarded the “Biscuit Blitz Award.”
