Jr Iron Chef [75]

Ironchef6 4/12/08: Mmm, something smells good. 

Middle and high school students from all over the state of Vermont compete in the first Annual Jr Iron Chef cooking competition which aims to celebrate local food, showcase VT seasonal produce and promote healthy local-food dishes in schools (Burlington School Food Project and VT FEED).

Competitors vary from professional chefs in training to novices but all share an appreciation for VT produce and creative cuisine.

Vermont is building solid connections between farms, schools and students' plates and championing the nation's localvore movement.

Music: The Smittens, A Little Revolution, "The Garden"

Location: Champlain Valley Exposition, Essex Junction, Vermont
