Contest Details

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.
