Catherine was nice enough to have me (the only non-celeb judge ; ), Tasha, from Tasha Does Tulsa and Betty Casey, editor of Tulsa Kids Magazine judge the teams. The winning team received 4 cooking classes from Sage!
The kids were judged on appearance, taste, plating and creativity. I was so impressed with all of the kids and their confidence. I would NEVER have been confident enough at that age to talk to a bunch of adults and explain to them the meal I prepared. They were all so awesome.
Below are some samples of the food we ate:
Look at the plating! So impressive and unique. This was curried chicken on a bed of apples and onions. It was a great combination.
I would have totally ordered this salad out at a restaurant. It was chicken on a bed of greens with pecans and apple slices with vinaigrette dusted with parmesan.
And, you know how I love desert. This was an apple muffin perfectly baked - crispy around the edges with real chunks of apple inside. Delish.
I didn't want them to take this one away. A perfect apple crisp. Heaven.
After eating 12 totally unique items I left so impressed with these kids. I am totally sending my kids to cooking school (um, when I have some). They were so enthusiastic about cooking and I cannot think of a better way to get your own personal chef (unless you marry someone who likes to cook. Minus one for me there.)
