World Championship Squirrel Cook Off
This is the one and only true World Championship Squirrel Cook Off. We are an invitational event but will accept
any true squirrel enthusiast and culinary masters of the beloved squirrel.
If you have a aunt, grandma, friend or just someone you know who can whip up a batch of squirrel, they need to prove it here and be recognized as the "BEST OF THE BEST!" Our event has been seen on Good Morning America, Front page of the Wall Street Journal, and many other media sources.
If you want to be around the top wild game chefs in the country, then you will want to be at the WCSCO. Squirrel Hunters and wild game cooks will be here from all over the country. Open to the public come enjoy all of the fun, learning, and unique recipes--only found at the cook off.
Use this site to help you determine if you have the want, the need, and the passion to join us for the biggest squirrel cook off around.
The next championship will be held in Bentonville, Arkansas in September on the 13th
Those traveling in for the event can find hotel and restaurant information at www.bentonville.org
Squirrel has long been a meat source for hunters and their families. This meat has helped many families survive the hard times and has also become a favorite dish among them. Many recipes and techniques have been passed down from the generations before that relied on these creatures for their livelihood.
Skinning, quartering, aging, and marinading are some but not all of the important aspects of the perfect squirrel dish. Each competitor will bring their unique methods to showcase in front of the crowd and judges in hopes of claiming the renowned title of "Master Chef."
A variety of techniques can achieve impressive results with such a modest creature. An animal thought by most to be a pest or backyard pet can be transformed into world-class dishes that will hold their own in fine restaurants. Slow cooking, smoking, grilling, and deep frying are all favorite methods to prepare the meat.
Like most cooking competitions, the final presentation of the finished dish is also an important factor. A naked squirrel lying on the plate won't cut it in this cook-off.
Money raised by the event is donated to charity. We have donated thousands of dollars to children shelters. If you have a charity that is looking for help, please contact us by using the contact page.
We love to cook, and we love to brag. That is what makes the
WCSCO the greatest cooking event in the country. Our competition is special
because our main ingredient cannot be purchased in stores. You have to work for
it and plan for it. The rules state that all teams must prepare their entrées
onsite; no off site prep is allowed. This guarantees a competition of intense
labor and time management. Teams (3 people) have only 2 ½ hrs. to create their dish. This
dish will be judged by a panel of true squirrel eaters, folks who know what
good food should taste like. Our event is held in the town of Bentonville, Arkansas on the downtown Bentonville square in conjunction with the Saturday morning Farmer's Market. The day and event have a true festival atmosphere. Bentonville is the home to the new Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, the Walmart Visitor Center, the Museum of Native American History and much more. So, come for the festival and stay for the fun! With 100 teams planned for this years event and people coming from coast to coast, this is sure to be one of the most memorable events of the year.
