The Frontier District 4-H Favorite Food Contest will be June 14th, 2021, at Celebration Hall, 220 W. 17th, in Ottawa. Set up will be at Noon and judging will begin at 12:30 p.m. The contest is for properly enrolled Frontier District 4-H members currently enrolled in the Foods project. Pre-register by May 28th by calling the Extension Office. There will be a winner chosen from each age division in each county and he/she will be eligible to participate in the Area Favorite Food Show in Emporia on June 22nd.
Each contestant will select a favorite food recipe from the following food groups: snack, salad, dessert, soup, meat, vegetable plate, sandwich, fruit, bread, drink, casserole, and others. The prepared favorite food should then be displayed with 1) a proper table setting (formal or informal, depending on the food choice), including a centerpiece, optional; 2) a recipe card for the favorite food and 3) a planned menu which includes the favorite food. The 4-H exhibitor is responsible for providing all equipment including a card table. Electrical appliances are not allowed.
Judges WILL NOT taste the food due to food safety concerns. Be prepared to explain how to prepare and serve the favorite food, discuss the nutritional value, state why the table service and dishes were selected, and why the centerpiece is suitable.
