As you may know, the UN declared 2016 the International Year of Pulses (IYP) and we remain committed to raising pulse awareness. To continue the movement into 2017, CVB teamed up with The Barrel Room in Menomonie to host our first annual Pulse Cook-Off on March 4. We could not have predicted what a success it would be! We had nearly 20 recipes entered, all including either kidney beans or black beans. We were fortunate enough to have UW-Stout Chancellor Dr. Bob Meyer and Menomonie Mayor Randy Knaack as our celebrity judges, along with great live music by Rich Schroeder and Jim Pejsa. Make sure to like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter to make sure you don’t miss out on our next night of pulses!
