Sweet 16 Brackets for Kentucky High School Junior Chef CompetitionThe brackets are up!!
Yes. This is really a thing. And I think it's a pretty cool opportunity for students to get involved and showcase their passion and talents in different areas.
This is a statewide high school cooking competition designed to offer youth the opportunity to learn valuable skills in recipe development, food preparation, marketing, public presentation, organization, teamwork and community involvement.
Additionally, the program will stimulate interest in local agriculture, create a nontraditional market for Kentucky producers, increase quality of products available to school cafeterias, and ultimately increase consumption of produce by Kentucky’s students.

I am hoping that I get the call to be an official taster.
