Hot As Cluck to compete in the Hot Chicken Festival

I just found out that we made it into the Hot Chicken Festival that takes places on July 4th at East Park. Team Ulika will be competing under the pseudonym Hot As Cluck. As part of the entry process we had to write a piece on why we should be selected to cook at this third annual event. I enlisted my father-in-law to help me write something clever and this is what we submitted:

Our chicken isn’t fried with luck,
We make it hot to give it pluck,
It’s not just pepper, salt and spices,
We’ve left ourselves to our own devices.
It really is our local food
Battered right here by Nashville dudes,
Grandma never fried like this
But it’s one style that cannot miss.
So let us cook at East-side Park
For us this isn’t just some lark
We’ll fry it hot and make it steamy
But we guarantee you’ll find it dreamy
Our chicken isn’t fried with luck,
We make it hot to give it pluck
Naturally. . . it’s Hot as Cluck

If you are in the area stop by and cheer on our team Hot as Cluck. I also want to give thanks to Andrew J. for helping us come up with the name.

Here is a picture of last year's winner Justin Jones:
