The Manheim Community Library is pleased to announce the return of Teen Chopped Challenge. Introduced last year as part of the Summer Reading Program, the program was an instant hit.
On June 25 and August 6, teens ages 11-18 will compete in a food preparation challenge similar to the popular Food Network television show. Each participant (or team) will be given a paper bag full of food items. They will be given an hour to prepare an appetizer, main course, or dessert. A panel of judges will then taste and rate each dish. Bring a bowl, measuring cup, mixing spoon and your culinary creativity! Spectators are welcome.
“It’s time to get creative with some very odd ingredients. Last year’s Spam and Jolly Rancher entrees were very tasty!” said Youth Librarian Colleen Gergely. “I can’t wait to see what our teens cook up this summer.”
Teen Central at 15 S. Wolf Street is once again hosting the challenge. This year, Manheim Community Library is pleased to partner with Giant Food Stores as sponsor of the program.
Teens can register online at manheimlibrary.org. Space is limited.
