Look, Cook, and Eat invites you to participate in a new event during the Iowa State Fair on Monday, August 15 at noon at the Elwell Family Food Center on the west side of the Fairgrounds.
Here’s what’s happening: New this year is a cooking competition called “Super Special Soups” sponsored by LCE and Kitchen Craft, a cookware company in Florida. It’s open to anyone 16 years of age or older with special needs. They want to taste your favorite soup recipe that uses nine ingredients or less–all you have to do is prepare the soup, bring it to the Fair for the competition, and write the recipe out on a card along with a few sentences about why your soup is special.
Each soup will be judged on Taste, Ease of Preparation, Appearance and Creativity.
1st Place winner receives $200, a 1-year subscription to LCE, and a 1-qt. saucepan from Kitchen Craft.
2nd Place winner receives $150, a 1-year subscription to LCE, and a 1-qt. saucepan from Kitchen Craft.
3rd Place winner receives $100, a 1-year subscription to LCE, and a 1-qt. saucepan from Kitchen Craft.
Every person that enters will receive a Look, Cook, and Eat spatula to use in their kitchen.
Participants can enter online here or print the documents below from the Fair booklet and mail them in on the address provided on the forms. Here’s the catch: deadline for entry is July 1! That’s this Friday!! Now, the soup recipe doesn’t need to be perfected by then. Participants just need to enter. The fee to enter is $5. From July 2 to July 8, the fee is $10. After July 10, entries close. Participants have plenty of time to get their soup recipes in shape for competition!
Questions can be directed to Sue Hoss of LCE at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope to see you at the Iowa State Fair on Monday, August 15!
