The New York Beef Council will host a Virtual Beef Tour and Competition open to ALL collegiate culinary programs throughout New York.
Invitation Details:This “at-school/at-home” competition will allow culinary students to learn about beef production on the farm and experiment with beef in the kitchen. The competition also includes a chance for participating students to win scholarship money. Students may work in teams of 2, 3 or 4 members, to develop creative and new beef dishes designed to be consumed at a fast-casual, pub-style restaurant (see Contest Criteria for more information).
Students can work on their project throughout the Spring 2021 semester whether it be in-class or on their own time, but are encouraged to RSVP by March 12 to receive their team's beef grocery gift card.
