The 4-H Food Challenge competition is coming up this spring, and Johanna Hicks want’s 4-H’ers to be ready. In order to prepare, participants were given a few hints, a bunch of ingredients, and instructed to make something delicious. There was plenty of guidance, and the crowd also go involved. Food safety was also discussed and practiced. A brief presentation about the creations ingredients, and nutritional values was also given.
I learned that avocados can go in smoothies, and almond slivers are a nice crunchy addition to chicken salad wraps. I also learned that lettuce wraps are not to be feared. Everyone got to sample the finished dishes, and I had seconds.
Johanna said that teams in competition usually have matching aprons, and really put on a show.
