The Food Challenge is a great opportunity for 4-H members to show off their culinary skills in a competition similar to the Food Network show Iron Chef! During the Food Challenge, teams of three to five students are given a set of ingredients and challenged to make a delicious. Team members must work together to develop a recipe and prepare a dish using the ingredients. Teams then make a presentation to a judging panel describing the preparation steps, serving size, and nutritional value.
Food Challenge is a great opportunity for 4-H Members to:
- Exhibit their knowledge and skills when preparing and presenting a dish;
- Learn to work as a team member;
- Practice public speaking skills; and
- Learn leadership skills.
