MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont state legislators are getting a chance to sample award-winning dishes from the winning teams of the Jr. Iron Chef VT competition.
The six winning teams are serving their entrees in a taste test at the Statehouse on Thursday.
Middle and high school teams comprised of more than 240 competitors from around Vermont competed in the ninth annual cooking competition March 19 at the Champlain Valley Exposition in Essex Junction. They had 90 minutes to prepare their recipes for a panel of judges that included chefs, farmers, child nutrition professionals, food writers and students.
Awards were presented to teams in the categories of “crowd pleaser,” ”lively local,” ”mise en place.”
The event is hosted by Vermont FEED, a project of the Northeast Organic Farming Association of Vermont, and Shelburne Farms.
