We invite children ages 6-16 to participate in the Junior Iron Chef – the food competition for budding chefs that was a huge success last year and is back by popular demand. This competition is a really fun and exciting way to get kids excited about food, learn new skills, be creative and have fun. It is an amazing experience that kids will never forget. Kids will be divided into two groups by age. (Please note that there is an additional fee for Junior Iron Chef registration; an advance registration is required- please see below).

Junior Iron Chef Competition ($20 each child)
Groups of 6-11 years old and 12-16 years old
