Hot summer weather made for a fine Tlell Fall Fair on Sunday, Aug. 5.

Among the prize-winning cattle, goats, and house plants, one of the highlights was Chef Reggie Roca’s sparkling win in the fourth annual Seafood Wars cook-off. Roca, one of the chefs behind The Phantom Kitchen, got top marks and a $1,000 prize from judges for his delicious fish and original sides, which included spiced cherries rolled in a culinary version of Pop Rocks exploding candies.
