The search for Florida’s next great student chef has begun with the start of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services’ “Student Chef Cook-Off.”
Students in 4th through 12th grade can submit snack recipes featuring Florida-grown products for a chance to compete in the regional and state cook-off.
The deadline to enter is February the 2nd.
The recipe must contain one fresh fruit or fresh vegetable grown in Florida.
Recipes will be judged on nutrition, presentation and originality.
Three qualifying round winners from each grade category will be invited to cook their recipes for a panel of judges.
Finalist rounds will be held next March and April.
