12 th Caulfield Scouts Masterchef Mystery Box Challenge Your patrol will compete against other patrols in a Masterchef cooking contest at Scouts this Thursday Are you ready? Remember that the purpose is to have fun, build your patrol skills and make a great meal. You must plate up two dishes – one for the judges tasting and another for your own patrol’s tasting. The Mystery Box ingredients have been selected and will be provided by the Leaders. Each Mystery Box contains 12 ingredients for each Patrol to base the menu around. You must prepare at least one dish. You also have access to cooking staples, such as sugar, flour, oil, etc. PLs may bring additional garnishes or ingredients with them, but their recipes must use at least 5 of the ingredients in the mystery box Each Patrol Leader should to think about what recipe(s) their Patrol will make on Thursday Scout night to be served to the Leaders and guest judge. The recipe(s) must be prepared during Scouts. Judging will be based on planning, organisation, balance & variety, presentation, taste, cooking hygiene, cleanup and initiative. Each Scout will bring along $2 to Scouts to cover the ingredient costs for the Masterchef challenge
The Judging Criteria Judges will visit your patrol and judge you in the following areas: –Planning: Did your patrol bring or find everything you need? We’re not just talking about the recipe ideas, cooking equipment, clean-up supplies and little extras to make the dinner interesting and fun. You may use any equipment in the q-store and the microwave and oven in the kitchen. –Organization, Cooperation & Clean-up: Does your patrol have jobs assigned to everyone? Are you not only doing your jobs, but also freely helping as needed to make your patrol the best? Are you arguing with each other or working like a well-oiled team? –Variety and Balance: Does your dinner include something from all the major food groups? Is it nutritious? Do you have reasonable proportions between the food groups? Are you getting a good meal before dessert? –Preparation and Presentation: Is everything properly cooked and served hot? Remember that this may be a cold night so think about how to keep things warm until everything is done. Also, do you plan to just slop the food onto the plate or arrange it attractively ? Has the patrol shown good kitchen hygiene? –Taste: Have you enhanced the taste using flavouring or mixing interesting ingredients? Do you like the final result? –Initiative and Ambition: Have some fun and impress us! Try cooking something a little bit beyond your skill level. Think about things besides the meal itself. What would make your dinner fun and interesting? What are you doing to build your patrol spirit? Why is your patrol the best?
