We are looking for volunteers to allow college student teams of 5 to use your home kitchen for an Iron Sharpens Iron Chef Competition!
What we ask of you:
1) To provide a light meal for 4-5 college students. Suggestions would be a soup and bread, pasta, or even order in pizza!
2) To provide basic spices and oils for cooking (salt, pepper, olive oil, etc) and oversee the students' use of your kitchen
3) To offer pointers to cooking "novices" and recipe suggestions?
Here's roughly how the night may go (there might be some slight changes):
6:15pm - Your group of 4-5 students will arrive at your home to join you for a light dinner (no dessert needed as we will provide this at the end of the evening). This is just an opportunity to be an extension of our Grace family and meet some new students, some of whom haven't been in a "real home" in months.
6:45pm - The students will receive a text with their required "secret ingredient."
6:45-7pm - You and the students can brainstorm recipe ideas. They will need to come up with two dishes - an entree (for one serving) and either an appetizer or dessert. One of these must include the secret ingredient.
7pm - The students will receive a text announcing that they can leave for the grocery store. Each team will have their own money ($25) to purchase basic items. If you have a small item (spices, oil, milk, butter) that they need and are willing to share it you can let them know. They will purchase all non-staple items such as proteins, vegetables, etc. They will have to learn to stick to a budget!
The students will return and will have until 8:45pm to complete their cooking assignment and return to the church with their dishes by 9PM. A panel of judges will be taste testing and will announce winners in a variety of categories. You are welcome to join us for this if you would like!
Any plates you provide or serving utensils will be washed and you will be able to pick them up at Grace Church in the Ministry Center that next Sunday (9:30-11am)
