The 4-H Food Science Club held a Food Showdown Contest on July 18, 2015 at the 4-H Jackson County Extension Office. Six 4-H club members participated in the contest: Amanda Coffman, Aubrey Coffman, David Dosher, Charisa Dosher, Jordan Howell, and Wyatt Jensen.
A contest has four secret ingredients to be featured in their cooking, and they can use items from the pantry to include in their dish to make it come together. For this contest, their four secret ingredients were ground beef, flour tortillas, shredded cheese, and iceberg lettuce. Each team has 40 minutes to cook, prepare, plate, cost out a serving, identify nutrition information, and write a recipe with a title. They had five minutes to present their dish to a panel of judges.
Special thanks to judges Gary Stickland, Jennifer Dollins, and Dusty Dollins. First place team was Amanda Coffman and Wyatt Jensen with their beef quesadilla and dinner salad. Second place team was Charisa Dosher and Jordan Howell with their beef nachos. And the third place team was David Dosher and Aubrey Coffman with their beef quesadilla. Congratulations to the participants and thank you to the judges for making this another successful 4-H learning event.
The next Food Showdown Contest will be held Oct. 10, at 10 a.m., at the 4-H Jackson County Extension Office. For more information how you can get involved in 4-H, contact the 4-H Extension Office 482-0823.
