  • Local named Grand Champion pie maker

     

    Although most modern recipes call for butter or vegetable shortening, she says her great-grandmother Pearl Flinchum always used lard in her pie crust.

That decision, coupled with a lot of experimentation with different recipes, led to Corbin being named Grand Champion in the 4-H Cloverville foods division at this year's Kentucky State Fair.
