Student chefs in grades 4 to 12 are invited to submit their cooking videos and B.C.-grown recipes as part of the annual Field to Fork Challenge.
Contestants will compete for cash prizes totalling $6,400 and the chance to have their recipes published in the Field to Fork recipe book. Top-placing entrants will also attend an annual virtual cooking conference, led by Maple Ridge Secondary culinary arts instructor Trevor Randle.
“Conference attendees will cook B.C.-grown recipes… enjoy virtual farm tours, learn about B.C. agriculture from farmers in the field, and enjoy other fun activities,” according to the B.C. Agriculture in the Classroom Foundation website, which is organizing the contest.
Last year’s contestants created an array of recipes, from the Hungry Hiker Skillet to Turkey Stuffed Zucchini Boats to Rhubarb Strawberry Pie.
The 2021 Field to Fork Challenge is a joint initiative of 4-H BC and BC Agriculture in the Classroom Foundation with the support of the BC Ministry of Agriculture, Food, and Fisheries. For more information on Field to Fork submissions, contact Lauren Best at 4-H BC at Lauren.Best@gov.bc.ca.
