Clay County 4-H members competed among 200 participates from 24 counties in the District 3 Food Challenge, Wednesday, Nov. 13 in Jacksboro.
The 4-H Food Challenge is modeled after such competitions as the Food Network’s Iron Chef, and allows teams of 4-H members to create a dish using only a predetermined amount of ingredients. From these ingredients, 4-H members must identify, prepare and then present information related to the serving size, nutritional value, and cost of the dish. Through out this energized process, the 4-H members are demonstrating their culinary and food safety skills.
Clay County 4-H members, Layton Graham, Madeline Catraon, Rexa Hand, Hadley Gee and Camrin Byers took first place in the junior fruits and vegetables division. The team of Kalico Burkes, Kylee Erickson, Kat Hand and Kylee Halter finished third in the junior nutritious snacks division.
