Downtown Portland welcomes students with its signature shops, tastes, and sights. They walk with friends on the pier, feast on lobster, try new styles, find souvenirs, and pose for pictures with friends as they experience a new city.
Teams of students compete in a cooking challenge! Given 2 hours, a table of supplies, and as much of the secret ingredient as they could need, students work together to create a pair of dishes to be scored on taste, secret ingredient use, creativity, presentation, and adherence to safety guidelines. Cooking right up to timer's end, their hopes of "beeting" the competition rest in the tongue's of our guest staff judges.
