CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, March 27 --Aln-it-2,'1998 "61 L wes' Mary Frederick dishes up blue ribbon recipes at age 88 By Jen Ellingsworth Mary Frederick knows the sweet taste of victory. It tastes just about as sweet as a puff pastry cookie. The creamy confections, which she simply calls her "puff'pastry cream cookies," are what earned the 88-year-old Lewes woman a blue ribbon in the "Amateur Cookies" category of the Re- hoboth Beach Chocolate Festival on March 21. It's not the first time that the ( lmcolate Continued from page 60 Cookies: Kristin Vincent, first place; Jenna Kulp, second; Kate- lyn Vincent, third: Cheesecake: Taylor Wade, first place; Brandon White, second.

Cake: Celsius, Rehoboth Beach, first place; La Rosa Negra light and flaky cylindrical-shaped pastries have netted Mary a first- place prize. The first win took place in Lakehurst, N.J., where she entered them in a baking con- test sponsored by the local bank. Although her award-winning recipe normally doesn't include chocolate, Mary decided to make the cream filling chocolate this time around. She said she found out about the Rehoboth Beach Chocolate Festival from one of her neighbors, Hjordis Lindberg, I Restaurant, second and third.

The chardonnay should be served about 55 F. If it is too cold, it won't be quite as appealing. In who told Mary about the choco- late festival one day when the two women were visiting. "She told me about the blue rib- bon she won in New Jersey," said Hjordis. "I said, 'Oh my, you know you may be interested in en- tering the chocolate festival here.' Hjordis said she enjoys having Mary live nearby and was elated to hear about her award. "I was so happy to play a part in this," said Hjordis.

In Europe, chardonnay is usually consumed at about 60 F. The winemakers strive to produce wine that is at its optimum in fla- vor and bouquet at that tempera- ture. American vintners tend to look at cooler temperatures for optimum performance. If you have any food and wine pairings you would like me to dis- cuss, mail suggestions to the Cape Gazette at P.O.

Mary, a veteran quilter who has also sewn up wins for her efforts in that hobby, said her cookies have to be baked on wooden dow- els in order to maintain their deli- cate appearance and texture; they are covered with wax paper and baked until they reach flaky per- fection. Preparation time is about three hours from start-to-finish, she said. "Some people say, 'That's too much work,'" said Mary, who lives in Lewes with her husband Frank, who will turn 92 in May. "I say, 'Not for me.' Even now, I'm taking my chocolate chip cookies out of the oven."
