Congratulations to our participating chefs for preparing 6 awesome dishes in Food for Tots 1st ever Cook Off!  It was a fantastic event that showed off our Food for Tots creativity, culinary skill and teamwork!  What a talented team!

Participating in the event were 3 teams of 2 chefs, who had to create 2 lunch dishes. Each team was presented with a mystery box with 2 main ingredients. They also had access to the pantry full of fresh fruits, vegetables, grains and spices to inspire their creativity. Each dish was graded on a set of criteria by judges with the grand prize being the winning dish featured on the upcoming Fall/Winter menu.

The culinary creations included:

  • Island Beef
  • Lemongrass Chicken
  • Beef Rouladen
  • Chicken Schnitzel with Mushroom Sauce
  • Sloppy Joes
  • Chicken Parmesan

Which will be the winning dish on the upcoming Fall/Winter menu? You will have to wait to taste and see!
