Mayfield High Wins First Junior Chef Competition

Aug 26, 2013

Mayfield High School won first place at the very  first Farm to School Junior Chef championship at the Kentucky State Fair. The three-member team from Mayfield came away with a narrow victory over Fern Creek at last week's competition.

The Mayfield team used a baked fajita recipe to win. The competition teaches students cooking skills, encourages healthy food choices and raises awareness about local foods. State Ag Commissioner James Comer says the competition teaches students appreciation for agriculture. Sullivan University awarded $6,000 scholarships for each member of the winning team and dollar scholarships for each member of the runner-up team.
