This will be a multi-county food show, but each county will be judged separately so that the 1st place winner is determined for the District Food Show. Counties participating will be Collin, Cooke, Denton and Grayson.
The theme for the 2018 Food Show is “Restaurant Re-Creations” What is your favorite restaurant entree? Is it an appetizer like fried cheese sticks or a main dish like Chicken Alfredo? maybe your favorite dish is a side dish like sweet potato fries or chips and salsa? Most Americans feel an evening out with family or friends qualifies for indulging in a few extra calories. However, the low nutritional value and high calorie and fat content of some of your “favorites” may shock you!
This year’s 4-H Food Show theme challenges contestants to take their favorite dish and make it a healthy one! Contestants should find ways to “re-create” the tast by using alternate ingredients and cooking methods. Contestants should discuss in their food show interview the substitutions of ingredients utilized to acquire the same taste and quality as their favorite restaurant serves.
The 4-H Food Show is a unique opportunity for 4-H’ers to showcase the skills and knowledge they have gained from participating in foods and nutrition projects as well as experience in presenting themselves with confidence. However, project members are not required to enter the show to complete the project.
