No actual cooking will occur, but youth will beassigned a cut of beef, list of available pantry items, and list of availablepieces of kitchen equipment. Everyone will receive their “mystery ingredients”information at the same time. Contestants will then have one hour to plan afive-minute presentation, including how they would prepare the beef,ingredients they would use, etc. At the end of the one-hour timeframe, allcontestants will connect via internet (or call in with telephone) to theirunique Zoom meeting and give their presentation, which will be recorded.Recorded presentations will be judged, and awards will be announced online at 7p.m., Wednesday, April 22nd.
