Concord Cooks!
Silvia Barajas, Natalie and Concord Mayor Carlyn Obringer cooking up a healthy meal.

Mayors from around Contra Costa County brought their city’s best local chefs to the 10th Annual Mayor’s Healthy Cook-Off Thursday in Todos Santos Plaza. The City of Concord sponsors the event along with Mt. Diablo Unified School District.

While Concord didn’t win first place — Oakley took that honor — Los Rancheros chef Silvia Barajas and brother Nico cooked up a mean sopa de pollo. The recipe has been in their family for three generations.

Mayor Carlyn Obringer and Mt. Diablo High School student Natalie stood in as sous chefs. They chopped and minced fresh veggies from the Farmers Market into Spanish rice and jicama-cauliflower sliders.

Entries were judged on healthiness, taste, sustainable handling of waste, budget-friendliness and creativity.
