Rick and Lisa Brumfield of Largo added Caribbean flavor to Oktoberfest in Indian Rocks Beach. Their Spicy Ketchup recently took second place in a national food competition.
Indian Rocks Beach - The beach version of the famous German festival has become an Indian Rocks Beach tradition. This year it was held on Saturday October 18 with contests, German and other international food offerings, fine art, crafts and a silent auction. Proceeds went to Indian Rocks Beach Action 2000 Inc. and the Indian Rocks Beach Rotary Club to fund projects to better and beautify the city.
Rick and Lisa Brumfield were among Oktoberfest Vendors that had hot and zesty food aficionados and holiday shoppers visit their booth. Their "Rick Daddy's" spicy ketchup recently won second place in the table condiment category at the National Fiery Food Challenge held in Ft Worth, Texas. The Challenge is the most prestigious in the industry where culinary experts judge fiery food product samples through a series of blind tastings.
The Brumfields explained their secret--making small batches to insure taste. Their sauces are served in numerous restaurants along the beach and sold on their website www.rickdaddys.com and in area convenience stores.
