I just read this article written by Morgan Connor in a Parenting New Hampshire online newsletter and I just had to share. What a COOL idea! I love cooking competitions and, as a former Home Economics educator, I believe creative kitchen time is a great bonding experience and confidence booster for kids. This event is a must on your family calendar!!
MINI IRON CHEF CHALLENGE by MORGEN OCONNORThe FoodWorks Mini Iron Chef Competition will be held on Sunday, March 18 at the Children’s Museum of NH in Dover. This fun cook-off will feature pairs of children in the role of chefs and adults in the role of sous chefs. Each pair will work together to turn a box of healthy ingredients – plus a mystery item to be revealed at the start of the session
– into tasty creations.
The Mini Iron Chef Challenge is planned for children ages 4-10 working with adult partners. Once they register, participants will receive the list of ingredients that will be provided by Hannaford at the event. At-home trial runs with these ingredients are encouraged so team members are familiar with these foods.
Two sessions of cook-offs will held on March 18: one session from 12:30 – 1:30 pm and a second session from 2-3 pm. The fee per team is $10 for museum members and $15 for non-members. Registration is required. Teams can register at the front desk or by calling the museum at 603-742-2002.
