add it to the list….i’ve been a food judge now. brentwood library called me up a week ago to see if i’d like to participate in their teen food competition that is based around the book series of the hunger games and of course i had to accept. the kids were broken into teams. to earn extra ingredients they had to answer trivia questions from the books, with a microwave and a wide selection of ingredients they rushed the tables to grab what they needed to create wonderful treats for the judges to try.

the first round were appetizers. all the teams created pizzas with tortillas, cheese, and a variety of toppings and sauces. the winner of the round was team 3 with their bit size slices topped with mini pepperoni and banana peppers.

the second and final round was dessert. all contestants were required to decorate a small sponge cake. the winner created a chocolate-banana cake. i was most impressed with their idea of taking coco powder mix and adding it to cool whip to get a chocolate whipped cream. the second runner-up created an elaborate chocolate volcano out of cool whip and chocolate chips.

the kids were great and so serious about their cooking as well as their indepth knowledge of the hunger games series. my guess is there are some future food bloggers in that group!
