Kitchen THrowdown at NFRD 2017

Cook, Compete, Win! 

The Kitchen Throwdown is NFRD’s very own food competition. The competition is open to 27 students who will work in teams of three. Each team will be equipped with a kitchen space to prepare creative, tasty, and sustainable meals. Chef Jon Deutsch and Chef Kaimana Chee will emcee the event and support students throughout the cooking process. Hungry Harvest is donating the provided ingredients that teams will use to create their dishes, including organic “ugly” produce. Each group will be responsible for using these ingredients to create one savory dish and one sweet dish. Students will work together to plan, prepare, and present their dishes. This will be a fun, fast-paced cooking event where students can learn from professionals, work with exciting ingredients, and compete to win awesome prizes!

Students may register as individuals, a group of two, or as a complete team of three. Individuals and groups of two will be placed into complete groups. If you are registering as a group of two or a complete team of three, you only need to complete one registration. The Kitchen Throwdown registration is first-come, first-served. Food Recovery Network reserves the right to select and assign individuals and pairs to groups. Only one team or up to three individuals per chapter will be accepted.

*Note: this event is taking place at the end of the conference on Sunday, November 5th from 2-5pm. Due to travel arrangements, many students are leaving early. Please register for this event if you are certain that you do not have travel conflicts.
