What’s a Durham lawyer from the Bronx doing in TC? Winning

    Rebekka Garrell’s sweet potato cream cheese bundt cake was the Best In Show winner in the adult division in the North Carolina Yam Festival at Tabor City Sweet Potato Cook-Off, held Wednesday at The Ritz Center in downtown Tabor City.
    Rebekka, an assistant public defender in Durham and a native of the Bronx in New York, is married to Tabor City native Mitchell Garrell, and attorney and former Durham prosecutor.
    Rebekka is serious about her cooking, and said she already is planning for next year’s competition.
    For more on the contest, and everything else during this week’s Yam Festival, see the Oct. 29 Tabor-Loris Tribune in print and online.
