Family PLUS Cook-off
To promote the cookbook and encourage families to cook together, BGCA and Kimberly-Clark held a series of Family PLUS Cook-offs across the country in 2008. Regional events were held in Atlanta, Minneapolis, MN, Garden Grove, Calif., Albany, N.Y. and Dallas. All the winners from the regional competitions were brought to Atlanta for the first-ever National Family PLUS Cook-off.
At the Cook-Off Championship, five teams engaged in an exciting cook-off. Each team included family members and a media representative. The teams were assigned to a cooking station – all stocked with the same ingredients. The object was for each team to use these ingredients to make the best mouth-watering dish.
The teams had one hour to prepare and cook their dish. A panel of judges sampled each team’s dish, with judging based on the presentation, taste and originality of the dish. The team with the most points was the Archer Family from Garden Grove, Calif. who took home the championship.
