Oil Patch Dispatch: CookFest helps build community

Email

While the goal of the fifth-annual Bakken Rocks CookFest is to give back to the communities where the oil companies operate, it also has become a serious culinary competition.

The winner doesn't get more than a plaque and bragging rights, but it gives oilfield workers the chance to show off secret recipes and grilling skills.
