4-H Food Challenge & Nutrition Quiz Bowl

Kade participated in the district 4-H Food Challenge on October 30.  This was his first year to try this event out.  From a set of predetermined ingredients provided, teams of three to five 4-H members develop a recipe and prepare the dish within 40 minutes.  Teams then make a presentation to a judging panel, explaning the preparation steps, serving size, food safety concerns, nutrition value and cost of the dish.  Kade's team placed 4th out of quite a few teams.  They had ingredients for a spaghetti type meal, but then an avocado was thrown in, which really confused them!  He had a great time, though.  The competition is like those you see on the Food Network.

On November 14, Kade participated in the district 4-H Food & Nutrition Quiz Bowl.  He did this last year and had a blast.  You get to use buzzers and the competition is really on!  His team (four boys) placed 4th out of 20+ teams.  Last year they got 3rd, so he was bummed, but the leaders were super proud.
