Let’s spice up your classroom after the holidays with a cookbook creation competition where students will be competing against other classrooms nationally to create a custom set of recipes!


We wanted to give you and your students a chance to put their food handler training and culinary skills to the test. We also wanted to provide an opportunity to give back to our wonderful teachers - we know it can often be difficult and expensive to obtain new cooking tools for your classrooms, and we wanted to make sure you and your students were set up for success for the rest of the school year!


Sign up! Last day of registration is Jan 10th. The competition starts Jan 13th and ends Feb 10th. We MUST have all PDFs of cookbooks for the participating classes as of Feb 10th. March 1st we will announce the winner! Everyone is allowed to participate.


However you choose to organize and delegate tasks and recipe creation is up to you and your class. Upon completion, submit a PDF of your scanned cookbook. If you can send us a photo of your class holding a printed version that would be wonderful! If you win, we will put this on our social media platforms!

The winning class will win a plaque for their classroom and $500 worth of new kitchen and cooking utensils. We understand that buying new cooking essentials is costly and often hard to get funding for. We will send the winning team a list of items to choose from that total $500 so that your classroom can get what it needs most! And last but not least, your class will win a spotlight on our social media in a few forms to be decided by our team. We would love to write a blog article about your school and culinary program once the competition is over!
