From left, judges Matt Eidem, LaVerne Poff Lawrence and Greg Seidl share a laugh while discussing a tiebreaker for second place during the Bicentennial Bake-off in the Elsa Strassweg Auditorium at the New Albany-Floyd County Public Library in New Albany on Wednesday evening. Recipes for the dishes in the contest were from the New Albany Bicentennial Cook Book that was released late last year. Prizes were awarded to first, second and third place winners by the judges, and participants and audience members were given the opportunity to vote for the people's choice award.
