Congratulations to the 2019 Culinary Kings Cooking Competition winners: Gerry Clubhouse!
Junior members, ages 10-12, from all three clubhouses, competed for the coveted Culinary Kings Trophy in this battle-chef-style cooking competition! After learning basic cooking techniques, food safety practices, and knife skills, our members showcased their skills by preparing a well-balanced meal during this heated event.
Gerry Clubhouse won, taking home the trophy with their Quesadilla Supreme entree. Our judges struggled to choose as every team made a fabulous dish! Abbe Clubhouse made Pineapple Fried Rice with Sautéed Chicken & Shrimp Skewers and Cucumber Salad with Peanut Dipping Sauce. Harriman Clubhouse made Infused Quinoa with Chicken. It was ALL delicious!
Thank you to our fabulous judges! We were so honored you joined us!
