We encourage all students in the Orcas Island Public School District to submit a recipe to Chef Zach Holley, our lead chef at the school cafeteria. Chef Zach and our planning committee review submissions and determine which students, based on a criterion outlined in the competition guidelines, will compete in the event. The day of the event, students bring their recipes, ingredients, and cooking supplies in hopes of out-cooking several other student chefs. A panel of five judges consisting of local food enthusiasts, taste, score and consult to determine student winners for grades K-6 and 7-12.
