Cooking class culminates with beef cook-off
By Press Release
The Black Mesa CattleWomen assisted the quarter one cooking class over the past six weeks. The Hotchkiss K-8 students learned about beef, basic nutrition, safe food preparation and presentation. The culminating activity is a beef cook off competition. The students are administered an individual written test over the materials presented. Then the students are provided a pound of hamburger from a member of the Black Mesa CattleWomen, and the group chooses a recipe, menu and table setting. The students work as a team to cook, present the dish and cleanup within a time allotment. During this time they are observed and scored by volunteers from the Black Mesa CattleWomen.
