October 18, 2011 in 4--H Iron Chef Competition
The 4-H Iron Chef Competition is a new opportunity for 4-H members to show their food preparation skills and creativity by working as a team of three to four member crews at the Ag-Fest in Tulare, California.
Members prepared three dishes that had to incorporate a mystery ingredient provided at the contest. The panel of judges evaluated the final project for taste, plating, originality, and food safety.
Each team prepared three plated courses (e.g. appetizer, soup, salad, main entrée, dessert, side dish). Each of the prepared foods must have been be from a different category of the six listed categories. Each course should have emphasized/showcased the secret ingredient.
