soup. The event was the annual Alabama Wildlife Federation Wild Game
Cook-Off at the Talladega Superspeedway.
The judges critiqued the dishes based on originality and taste in

Shelley England and Allen Nicholls teamed up to produce the
impromptu winning recipe. It was made with filleted bream, turnip
greens, bacon, bell peppers and onions. It was all rolled into an egg
roll and deep fried.
