Mesquite Elementary Students Serving Up Deliciousness at Their 2nd Annual Breakfast Cook-Off
Mesquite Elementary School in Gilbert held their Second Annual Fuel Up to Play 60 Cook-Off and it was nothing short of delicious!! PE teacher and Fuel Up to Play 60 Program Advisor Morgan Pardy reached out to local breakfast eatery, Snooze, and invited them to visit with students about cooking using different types of food. Afterward, students were encouraged to form teams and submit a recipe for a chance to participate in the cook-off. In the end, four teams were chosen: Team Wonder Chefs, The Crazy Cooks, The Three Amigos and Team Bossome. The young chefs were asked to prepare and submit a shopping list of ingredients which were purchased using donated funds. Food items, tables, cooking utensils and appliances needed by each station were set up on the day of the event. Under adult supervision, students were required to prepare and assemble the recipes on their own. After the one hour time limit, each group was asked to provide a plated sample and present a pitch of their culinary creation to five guest judges. Team Wonder Chefs came out on top with their impressive time management, team work and of course, tasty fare!
