Digital DIY Kitchen – Make It. Eat It. Write about it.

Making chocolate pudding from scratch

IACP Kids-in-the-Kitchen has teamed up with Green Ribbon Schools & DooF (‘food’ backwards) to host an exciting online culinary education project for kids ages 5-18. Joining the fun in our IACP Kids’ Digital DIY Kitchen is easy – and there are lots of great prizes!

Here’s all kids need to do:

  1. Choose a food you’d normally buy in a store or order in a restaurant, then try to make it yourself.
  2. Tell us about your kitchen adventure (in words, photos and/or video).
  3. Share the fun with other kids on the Green Ribbon Schools website

Prize winners will be chosen at random — every kid who enters has a chance to win! We’ll also be featuring a few of our most distinguished entries on the International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP) website, where kids will get feedback from professional food writers, photographers, stylists and TV folks!

    One of my students wants to enter the cooking contest, and I have registered with Green Ribbon Schools, using the IACP Kids-in-the-kitchen and Invite Code.
    What is the due date for the student’s submission?

    Thank you
