Show off cooking skills at Teen Iron Chefby Gabrielle Fimbres on Apr. 15, 2009, under Family, Local, Taste
Are you a kid who likes to create edible concoctions?
Show off your skills at the Healthy Kids Day Teen Iron Chef competition Saturday from noon to 2 p.m. at the John Valenzuela Youth Center, 1550 S. Sixth Ave.
Teams of six teens will battle one another in creating a healthy snack within an allotted amount of time.
The winning snack will be chosen from a panel of celebrity judges, and prizes will be awarded.
The competition is organized by University of Arizona library science students, said Sol Gomez, librarian at the Sam Lena-South Tucson Branch Library, who is helping with the event.
Participants won’t know until competition starts what ingredients are available to them.
“They will come up with healthy snacks, something they could put together when they come home from school, that taste great,” Gomez said.
To register for the competition, call 594-5265.
