The Women’s Food Alliance is hosting the 3rd Annual Kids in the Kitchen Cooking Contest for children 8 years-12 years of age with culinary prizes that they can share with their family if they come up with a tasty and unique family recipe! Kids love to be in the kitchen – and making a favorite family dessert recipe is a great way to launch their creativity by cooking something yummy for their family. When children are in the kitchen, they surprisingly learn to express their individuality and curiosity about food, plus they learn a little more about math, science, reading and love! Cooking something for the family grows independence while possibly inspiring youngsters to eat healthier too.
For the little ones to enter, email the dessert recipe and a story about “Why I Like to Cook for My Family” to Leigh Cort, the Women’s Food Alliance President at [email protected]
The Recipes Must Include:
- Child’s Name
- Email (parent or guardian contact please)
- Include Recipe Name & a Brief Story about the favorite family recipe and “WHY I Like to Cook for My Family”
Entrants must be 8-12 years old, and the deadlines for email entries is July 1, 2020.
The Women’s Food Alliance will select the Top 12 Finalists by judging on:
- Originality and Use of Ingredients
- Dessert Presentation
- Dessert Name and Story about “Why I Like to Cook for My Family”
The chosen top 12 finalists will be invited to attend the OFFICIAL Dessert Judging on July 20, 2020 at JAX Cooking Studio at 5:30pm in Jacksonville. All children must be accompanied by an adult, and a minimum of 6 tastings must be on a presentation serving plate for the judges. Each child must bring the completed dessert’s name, recipe, and the child’s name on a piece of paper to accompany the dessert.
