When thinking of peach dishes, most would naturally gravitate toward peach cobbler, but each year locals test out their culinary skills to see what new peach dish they can conjure up for the annual Peach Cookery Contest.
Sara Maricelli, formerly of Covington and now of Ruston, took home the Grand Prize for the Adult Division on Friday with her rendition of Cajun Tilapia with Fresh Peach Salsa.
“I write an amateur food blog, so I am always looking for new recipes to try,” said Marcicelli.
Auditions for Ruston Community Theatre’s next production, the musical “Bye Bye Birdie,” will be at The Dixie Center for the Arts at 10 a.m. Saturday and 6 p.m. Monday.
The musical opens July 9 and will be directed by Dee Alexander. “Bye Bye Birdie” won the Tony Award for Best Musical in 1961 and a successful movie version soon followed starring Dick Van Dyke, Janet Leigh, Paul Lynde and Ann-Margret.
