State Fair FD Kitchen

Another FFAM Missouri State Fair EMS and Fire Department in the history books. New fire and EMS personnel, which we are always glad to see. We started our first meal on Wednesday evening August, 8, 2018.

Our liquid consumption was fifteen gallons of pink lemonade, fifteen gallons of sweet tea and five gallons of unsweetened tea in a 24 hour period. Which equaled 151 gallons of lemonade and sweet tea, 55 gallons unsweetened tea and 50 gallons of water.

We were very thankful for all the donations of food. Our group especially enjoyed the fresh tomatoes with lunch and dinner. Rice krispie treats were a favorite from all of my children even the older ones. Continue Reading →

Kitchen Recap

I sincerely hope we made an impression and you will be back next year. A good fair temperature was cooperative.

This year I was responsible for salads and desserts. R.B. Brown was head chef in charge and did an excellent job making some new food which was very good. We averaged feeding 60 for breakfast, 80 at lunch and 105-115 at dinner. Starting on Monday the Sedalia Fire joined us for dinner, also Pettis County and the fair security which is mainly Sedalia police. Along with the State Patrol. We would go thru 30 gallons of sweet tea, 20 gallons of unsweetened tea and 30 gallons of koolaid/lemonade along with 150+ cups of coffee in a 24-hour period.

I want to thank some kitchen help: Larry and Ann Jones, Larry and Kathy Eggen, Angie Fields, Brenda Carrell, Ed Daugherty and Gordon Ekedahol. Anybody would help if you asked. A special thank you to engine and EMS crews who helped with breakfast and dishes after a meal, a huge help. Continue Reading →
