Black Mesa CattleWomen Sponsored the Hotchkiss K-8 Beef Cook Off
Every six weeks a new class at the Hotchkiss K-8, begins learning about different life skills. The class includes a unit about Cooking. Black Mesa CattleWomen sponsors the event. The students are provided information on beef nutrition, proper cooking and recipes. A competition is held at the end of the six weeks where the students’ knowledge is assessed with a written test and a cooking activity that includes, developing a menu, gathering ingredients and following a recipe, using proper cooking techniques, and setting a table. The students are scored by CattleWomen judges using a rubric. The following day Black Mesa CattleWomen member, Nancy Carlson, presented the awards.
