Oklahoma 4-H Food Showdown is a youth culinary challenge where three member teams compete to create a dish while demonstrating their knowledge in foods and nutrition, kitchen safety, equipment and creativity in food preparation. 4-H Food Showdown teams will create their dish using only a clue, provided secret ingredients and items from the common pantry. From the secret ingredients, 4-H members must identify, prepare and then present information related to the serving size, nutritional value and cost of the dish.  Grab your apron, chef’s hat and sharpen your knowledge in foods and nutrition for the exciting new 4-H Food Showdown!
