The Nebraska Mystery Foods Event is a competitive food preparation event for youth that highlights Nebraska grown foods. A basket of food items will be given to each team of two to four members. In preparing their main entree, they must use only the food from the basket and a “mystery” ingredient that will not be revealed until just before the event. When complete, each team will make a short presentation to the judges explaining their entree.

Objectives:

  • Participate in a competitive event that highlights Nebraska grown foods and/or Nebraska food products
  • Exhibit their knowledge and skills when preparing and presenting a dish utilizing Nebraska foods
  • Engage in 21st century skills such as teamwork and public speaking
  • Learn about careers related to food, nutrition, and food science

The mystery ingredient will be one of these three Nebraska foods:

  • Cooked Ground Beef
  • Flat Iron Steak
