Extension will host TV-style cooking competition this summer

(Posted April 1, 2024)

Enjoy television cooking contests like “Chopped” and “The Great American Baking Show”? Then, get ready for Madison County 4-H’s first ever Grand Clover Cooking Challenge.

This event is open to youths ages 8 to 18 as of Jan. 1, 2024, and will take place July 17-18 at the Della Selsor Building at the Madison County Fairgrounds in London. Youths do not need to be 4-H members to participate.

With a clock running, teams of three or four will compete to put forth a prize-winning four-course meal that includes an appetizer, salad dish, main course, and dessert. Organizers will provide all supplies, including a mystery box of ingredients the chefs must incorporate into their dishes. Teams will have electric burners and electric skills at their stations, along with access to the kitchen sink and oven.

The junior contest (ages 8-13) is set for 5:30 p.m. July 17. The senior contest (ages 14-18) is set for 5:30 p.m. July 18. Registration opens May 1. Watch madison.osu.edu for details.

The contest is an outgrowth of the Dorothy Lewis, Freda and Roy Barnhart, and Mary and Frank Jenkins 4-H Endowment Fund. The fund supports efforts and programs that focus on nutrition education for youths.

For details, contact Laura Dillion, Madison County Extension’s 4-H youth development educator, at (740) 852-0975.
