Michelle’s Table wins two awards at the State Fair of Virginia
When Michelle’s Table owner Michelle Duggins heard about the Charcuterie Competition at the State Fair of Virginia, she immediately signed up to participate. Duggins used six ingredients that were made in Virginia (a requirement for the competition), including Appalachian Cheese, local goat cheese, and Caramel Apple Jam from Sprelly. After putting together her charcuterie board, Duggins won first place in the Charcuterie Competition, as well second place in the Grilled Cheese competition for another splendid recipe.
“It really validates that what I’m doing, people appreciate,” Duggins said, also noting that this is her first participation in a food competition.
With Michelle’s Table, Duggins has quickly made a name for herself as one of the leading, pristine catering companies in Fredericksburg. With these two awards, for which she received a blue ribbon for first place and red ribbon for second, Duggins has once again received deserved acclaim for her delicious food. Her focus on utilizing local ingredients is a substantial benefit to her business, and to the Fredericksburg community.
“Fredericksburg is the kind of community that’s not really super competitive, but more just supportive of each other,” Duggins said. And with the meals that Michelle’s Table has provided to the region, the support and recognition that Duggins has received is well-earned.
