County Food Challenge Contest
The 4-H Food Challenge is another fun way that 4-H members can exhibit their knowledge and skills while working as a team to create that “special dish”. Modeled after the Food Network’s “Iron Chef”, this contest challenges teams of 3 – 5 members to create a dish using a predetermined set of ingredients. There is always a lot of excitement and laughter as members build lasting friendships while working together as a team to meet the challenge.
Once again, TCU has graciously agreed to host the event for us. The contest date is November 7, so save the date. The entry registrations are due by October 15. All participants must have an active enrollment for the 2015-2016 year on Texas 4-H Connect.
Coaches: Sample lesson plans are located under the topic of Food Challenge at: http://texas4-h.tamu.edu/healthy_lifestyles/
