4-H is holding their annual food and nutrition event, the Favorite Foods Festival, and has a call out for entrees for their junior “Local Food Iron Chef” event — a great way to get out and meet other 4-H’ers, try a new dish, and learn more about local food!
4-H Favorite Foods Festival
Ellis Elementary School, Fremont, NH
Friday, February 11, 5–8:30 p.m.
Hello friends of local foods and of the 4-H Favorite Foods Festival! The good news is that we have a cool “Local Food Iron Chef” division at this year’s Rockingham County 4-H Favorite Foods Festival planned for 2/11/11 (next Friday evening).
The bad news Is that as of now, we don’t have (m)any youth cooking in it! Yikes!
You don’t cook there, just bring a dish and it is not an overly competitive atmosphere (there is no overall winner…just feedback from evaluators) followed by a tasting. We have many youth signed up in other divisions so there should be a good sized and fun crowd there…a great opportunity to highlight cooking with local foods in winter and why it does not have to be scary.
Youth do not need to be current 4-H members (we could sign them up there for free) but they would need to be between the ages of 8 and 18.
