Is there a mini culinary mastermind living in your kitchen? EdVenture may have the perfect competition for them!

EdVenture is on the look-out for the most talented kid chefs around the Midlands for its new culinary program, Diced. The four-week long cooking course will feature healthy, locally sourced ingredients with a cook-off challenge in its 5th week.

During the final challenge, chefs will get the opportunity to show off their skills by creating three dishes in 30 minutes — using items found in a mystery basket. The winner and runner-up will get a grand prize to help them pursue a career in the culinary field.
