Nothing says summer like bringing friends, family, and neighbors together over a home cooked meal. Rosedale residents can do just that at Rosedale Development Association’s garden-inspired cook off, “Plot to Plate,” from 6-8 p.m. on July 28 at the 45th and Rainbow Community Garden. Entry is free for both contestants and attendees.
Participants can enter their garden-inspired dish to win Most Colorful, People’s Choice, or Judge’s Choice. Contestants will also be entered to win great prizes from local businesses.
But if you don’t consider yourself much of a cook, you can help choose the winner of the People’s Choice award by sampling all of the dishes.
“Plot to Plate” will be judged by a panel of nutrition experts and community stakeholders, including Healthy Communities Wyandotte’s Alyssa Carodine and Rachel Barkley, clinical associate professor at the University of Kansas Medical Center.
“I think this competition is a really cool way to show the community that it’s possible to grow your own ingredients and make something totally delicious,” Carodine said.
To submit your dish to the cook off, entry forms are available at rosedale. org/events/plot-to-plate/ or at RDA’s office at 1403 Southwest Blvd., KCK.
