   The Dutchess County Fair SporkRun was back at the fair on Tuesday. A handful of judges were privileged to taste ten main course dishes from various food vendors.  While not a theme of the competition, many of the dishes featured macaroni and cheese.  The winning entrée was the bacon, mac and cheese calzone from Gillette Pizza. It featured Gillette’s hand tossed pizza dough that was stuffed with diced hickory bacon, homemade cheddar mac n cheese and lots of mozzarella cheese.  Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it!
