Bloom Youth Project Iron Chef Competition

Last month, Bloom Youth Project interns and Sharon Dohse, client resource and education supervisor, devised a friendly Iron Chef-style competition to demonstrate their farm-fresh cooking and teamwork skills. What resulted was something to behold. They made roasted root vegetable pot stickers, vegetable curry, chili-sweet corn ice cream (winner – most creative), salad with corn, tomato, and herbs, rice pudding with berries and much, much, more.

Thank you Sun Valley Company Chefs, Hal Jardine and Steve Van Zelfden for mentoring the chefs-in-training, and judges Sarah Barnett Seppa, Wendy Little, and Sierra Schuckert and the one and only Sharon Dohse for making it all happen.

Bloom Youth Project is funded in part by the Wood River Women’s Foundation.

Please enjoy the beautiful presentation and hard work of the interns…..
