2019 4-H Food Show
What is your favorite restaurant entrée? Is it an appetizer like fried cheese sticks or a main dish like Chicken Alfredo? Maybe your favorite dish is a side dish like sweet potato fries or chips and salsa? Most Americans feel an evening out with family or friends qualifies for indulging in a few extra calories. However, the low nutritional value and high calorie and fat content of some of your “favorites” may shock you!
This year’s 4-H Food Show theme, Restaurant Re-Creations, challenges you to take your favorite dish and make it a healthy one! Find ways to “recreate” the taste by using alternate ingredients and cooking methods. During your food show interview, discuss the substitutions of ingredients you utilized to acquire the same taste and quality as the restaurant serves.
