Top Prep Chefs to Compete in Louisville

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- A new state high school competition involving pots and pans will take place during the Kentucky State Fair.

The state Agriculture Department says the first Kentucky Farm to School Junior Chef Cook Off will start Thursday and continue until Aug. 23 at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville. Fifteen teams advanced earlier this year to compete for the Junior Chef title on the Gourmet Garden Stage in the lobby of South Wing A.

State Agriculture Commissioner James Comer says the competition allows young people to learn cooking skills and understand the importance of buying locally grown foods.

Teams from Bardstown Thomas Nelson, Barren County, Boyle County, Breathitt County, Conner, Fern Creek, Fort Campbell, Madison Southern, Mayfield, Menifee County, Montgomery County, Oldham County, Pikeville, Portland Christian and Whitley County are competing.
