Meagan Peoples, a students at Miller Career and Technology Center, recently participated in the state mystery basket competition hosted by the Family, Community Career Leaders of America (FCCLA). Peoples, a students at Katy High School, competed against 14 other students from across the state and placed first in the event.
Participants were provided with a mystery basket of two ingredients and given only 60 minutes to plan, create, and prepare a single entrée, including a protein, starch, and vegetable, using the two items and the supply of pantry ingredients with only two portable burners and the equipment the contestants choose to bring to the competition. In addition, the competitors had to demonstrate proper use of equipment, technique, safety, and sanitation. The competition is very similar to the hit show Chopped that airs on the Food Network Channel. Please mention you found this on www.KatyMagazine.com.
