This is an event that will put your kitchen to the test in a friendly battle of the rations. The goal is to provide period rations which the general public will be welcome to sample and vote for People’s Choice throughout the afternoon on Friday and Saturday. The competition will conclude with a judged competition on Saturday in a battle of the field kitchens. Judging will take into account the quality of the food prepared as well as the quality of the kitchen display. There is funding in place to cover the expense of food for every field kitchen. Each kitchen will have a donation bucket assigned to them, and the proceeds of each bucket will be split 50/50 with MHPG and the kitchen which raised the money. We understand the effort and expense that goes into a field kitchen setup, so we hope this will help.
We would like to represent military rations from as many eras as possible. If you think you and your crew have the skills and your kitchen display is up to snuff, this is your chance to display them and interact with the public in a way that connects them to the past through food.
Setup begins on Wednesday, June 12th starting at 12:00 noon. The main event opens Friday morning at 9:00 AM. All setup will need to be completed by 8:00 AM Friday, and all modern vehicles need to be moved from the site by 7:30 AM. Kitchens requiring more time to set up can coordinate earlier arrivals.
Plan on cooking and serving samples to the public. The event will provide disposable plates and utensils for the public. You MUST provide us with a list of ingredients that you are using (for allergen reasons) AT LEAST 2 WEEKS before the start of the event. Email ingredient list to email@example.com. Please keep all food receipts, and bring them to the event so that you can be reimbursed at the event, or a check can be mailed to you.
