Since William (of A Cooked-Up Fairy Tale) mistakenly turned fairy tale ingredients into delectable dishes and cooked up several new happily-ever-afters, the magical land of fairy tales has gone wild for cooking.

For weeks they binge-watched cooking shows and then decided to have a cooking competition of their own. They threw around some ideas and the First-Ever Fairy Tale Cook Off was born.

They named Goldilocks as judge since she has a very picky palate. The competition became very heated when the Big Bad Wolf gobbled Little Red Riding Hood’s dish right out of her picnic basket before Goldilocks had a chance to sample it.

Also, the witch from Hansel and Gretel built a gingerbread house that might’ve won the competition hands down had she not been trying to lure the competing chefs into her room-sized oven. When Goldilocks told her that she was disqualified, she became boiling mad and stomped off shouting, “I’ve been burned!”

Despite the trouble, Goldilocks was able to narrow it down to the three final chefs. Now it’s up to you to read about their entries and vote for your favorite chef by commenting below.

Not only will a First-Ever Fairy Tale Cook Off winner be named after the votes are tallied, but your vote will land your name in a drawing for one of five signed copies of A Cooked-Up Fairy Tale. Voting will end at midnight CST on November 30th so be sure to comment before then or your coach will turn into a pumpkin and . . . oh wait . . . that’s another story. **But if you don’t vote by then you won’t be a part of choosing the First-Ever Fairy Tale Cook Off winner. You know you want to be a part of this happily-ever-after!

  1. Our house has picked the mouth-watering cake presented by the Giant. We hope it is giant-sized and we have to eat through it on our way to bed. Kelsey says, “It looks too good to eat. But I still will.” Lauri says, “I love kit kats!” Kelsey says, “I don’t love kit kats. Three Musketeers would be better.”

    1. Ah! I’ll pass the Three Musketeers idea on to the Giant. He may want to try that for a future cook-off.
      And wow! Your house is all over the giant’s cake! After the way he behaved in the original Jack and the Beanstalk, I was glad to see he didn’t bake bread for the cook-off…right???
      “Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum I smell the blood of an Englishman. Be he alive or be he dead, I’ll grind his bones to make my bread.”
      Thanks for coming by, Lauri. I’m excited that your entire house got involved!
