On Sunday, February 15 at 1:30 p.m., stop by the Puett Room (that glass room in the Children's Room) to see if you are the ultimate snack master at our Teen Iron Chef program. What is the secret ingredient? You'll have to be there to find out.

Get inspiration from an episode of the TV show and then assemble your creation (sweet or salty) with the ingredients provided.*

Snacks will be judged on creativity and taste.

Chefs, judges, and observers needed!**
*Judges have the right to refuse to taste something that looks inedible.
**If you have an allergy, just call us and let us know ahead of time.
