Youth cook off

This is the ultimate Cook Off! We want to test your knowledge of spice and skill! Teams, supervised by leaders will make a main dish, and a dessert to be judged. The main dish needs to have a carb (pasta, rice, etc) a vegetable, and a protein. Each team will have a mystery bag to incorporate into the dishes.


There will be a 60 min time limit to cook the two dishes. So as a team you will need to be creative with what you will make.


Here are the needed items your team needs to bring:


Team Supplies:

  • Electric frying pan or Hot plate with pans
  • Rice cooker
  • Cutting boards
  • Knives and other utensils
  • Bowls


Each team will have their own table to set up and have during the competition.


Event Plan:

  • -       Each team will provide essential cooking tools, including electric frying pans, rice cookers, cutting boards, knives, utensils, and bowls for each group.
  • -       Mystery bags will be provided, containing one fruit, one meat, and one "interesting" ingredient (canned or fresh).
  • -       The cooking setup will be in the fellowship hall
  • -       Pantry items will be shared among all teams to encourage creativity in using what's available.
