This event is one of the most anticipated during the conference. Twelve teams of four will compete in a hot food competition. Each team will be given a mystery basket of products with which they will have three hours to prepare 10 servings. We will crown the best culinary team in the nation. More details will be provided at Thursday’s mandatory afternoon meeting. The competition is evaluated by a panel of national judges. This is a serious but fun event.
