What’s the Contest?
The 7th Annual FREE Thanksgiving Cooking Boot Camp at Apron’s Cooking School at Publix Supermarket in the Shoppes of Citrus Park in Tampa will take place on October 14, 2012. This year, the class will focus on desserts, and cooks as young as 13 will be considered. So if your teen is a budding chef, he/she can compete for a spot as well!
To earn a slot, you will need to craft a brief note about why you want to attend. Is there some heartwarming family story? Or a sad tale of a Thanksgiving dinner gone horribly wrong?
Tell them about it! They love a good story.
