- $200 to assist with the purchase of ingredients for your dish.

- Portioning is limited to a bite size (i.e. a single mouth full). Portions should not exceed a single fork/spoon capacity. Additional details will be discussed during registration; however, assistance is available for detailed menu planning, portion sizing, and/or budgeting.
- Example: 1 pound (lb) of raw, lean steak should serve 32 people. If you serve the steak with additional ingredients (i.e. a piece of diced potato or a topping), 1 lb could extend to 40 portions.
- Example: one jumbo shrimp, halved, serves 2 people. One medium shrimp is a single serving.
- Example: if serving a soup/liquid, portions including garnish are not to exceed 2 fl. oz. (shot glass).
- Attractiveness of dishes are certainly an important detail, however, keep garnishing to a minimum unless they add value to the flavor. All components must assemble in a one-bite swipe effort.
- Please be prepared to answer questions regarding your creation and its ingredients. Attendees may have concerns regarding allergies/dietary restrictions.
- Encourage family/friends to attend. Tickets are $55 per person.
- The chef with the most votes will be crowned fan favorite and winner of JLM’s 2020 Men in the Kitchen.
- All proceeds support the JLM’s mission driven community projects while also promoting voluntarism and developing the potential of women in leadership roles.
Equipment will be pre-assigned. Participation as a cook is limited, so sign up TODAY!
We encourage a test-run early in the planning process to help you understand portioning, as foods tend to shrink and change properties.
Thank you in advance for all your hard work – we are excited to taste your creations!
