It’s time to show off all your culinary skills at the upcoming Area Food Show! This will be held on Saturday, March 2 and is open to youth ages 5 and up. There are four age categories to participate in:  Cloverbud (ages 5-8), Junior (9-13), and Senior (14-18).

Categories include: snack/appetizer, main dish, vegetable/soup/salad, and desserts.

This is also a great time to show off your table presentation skills (i.e., tablecloth, flowers, or decorative items that go with the theme of your dish). You must bring serving plates and utensils for at least two judges (plastic and paper are fine). At the end of the day, we will all get to sample everyone’s dishes so additional plates and utensils are recommended but not mandatory.

Transportation can be provided but you MUST let us know ahead of time. We will leave the office at 8:30 a.m. Setup will begin at 9:30 a.m. and Judging will begin at 10 a.m. Your dish must be cooked ahead of time. There are no microwaves or stoves available, but we do have access to electric outlets. While judges taste all the wonderful recipes, participants can enjoy different hands-on activities.
Participants will be judged on recipe, taste, table setting, and nutrition. All participants will receive a cookbook of all the recipes featured at the event. You must fill out a registration form to participate.
