Attention, parents and caregivers, do you have a junior chef in the house? Then, if you live near or around Fairfax, Virginia, go register your kids for the Ah Love Kids Who Cook kids’ cooking competition happening on Sunday, June 28th, from 11am to 5pm at their Mosaic District location. I’m happy to announce that Hip Mama’s Place is co-sponsoring this great event to help kids improve and challenge their cooking skills, while supporting a really worthwhile cause for needy children and their families in the District of Columbia.
Event details below:
* The competition is open to children aged 8-12. There will be a total of 24 competitors working in pairs.
* Entries are first come first served. Payment must accompany entry form to be in line.
* There will be 4 rounds of competition, each round will have three pairs of children focused on: salad, pasta and dessert
* There is a registration fee of $55 for participating in the cooking competition. You must request first, second and third choice for competition choice, but assignments will be made on a first-come-first-served basis. You will be notified ahead of time which course your child has been assigned to.
*Each competitor receives an apron to keep. Each round has a champion team awarded prizes.
*With the parent/guardian permission, the winning teams will be photographed and announced on Ah Love Oil & Vinegar’s social media and website.
*Each round will have one or two adults mentors helping the children. There will be three judges per round . Judges will be local chefs and restaurant professionals; food bloggers (including myself!); editors; and other food professionals.
*Proceeds from the day’s sale will benefit Martha’s Table, an organization that is working to build a better future for children, their families and many neighbors in the District of Columbia by increasing access to Healthy Starts, Healthy Eating, and Healthy Connections.
I will be one of the judges in the third round of competition, and will be there to help your child feel like a champion!
