CALLING ALL JR. IRON CHEFS
Burlington School Food Project and Vermont FEED host the 3rd annual Jr. Iron Chef VT
Are you a middle school or high school student looking to show your skills in the kitchen?
Applications are now being accepted for the 3rd annual Jr. Iron Chef VT. Jr. Iron Chef VT is hosted by the Burlington School Food Project and Vermont FEED as a statewide culinary competition that gives students an opportunity to gain hands-on experience preparing nutritious, farm-fresh foods. This experience will encourage students to make healthy eating choices and understand more about nutrition, local agriculture, the culinary arts and school food systems.
In this competition, teams of middle and high school students are invited to create delicious dishes using seasonal, local ingredients. Recipes should be replicable by school foodservice and will have a chance to be featured in school meals. Three awards will be given in each age group: Best in Show, Most Creative, and Greatest Number/Best Use of Local Ingredients.
Jr. Iron Chef VT will be held at the Champlain Valley Expo on Saturday, March 27th, 2010 from 9:30 am - 3:30 pm. Team slots are limited and applications will be accepted on a first-come, first serve basis.
All proceeds from the event will support statewide Farm-to-School initiatives led by Vermont FEED and the Burlington School Food Project.
Applications are now available at www.jrironchefvt.org.
