    The Battle of the Salad Swag 2017 Iron Chef Competition


    Year 5 of the Nixa Iron Chef will be the ultimate test of your culinary skills & creativity.  This is not salad in the ordinary sense…we want your greatest, most creative, deliciously healthful, made from scratch “artistically composed salad” innovation.  Think beyond lettuce and take salad to the next level with veggies, fruits, grains, legumes, pasta, greens, herbs, spices, dressings/sauces & more...


    This is a FREE Event for the public to attend!!!!!  Last year SHAC awarded cash & culinary prizes and the top teams from the grades 4-6 and Master Chef grade category were featured on OzarksLive! TV show making their recipes.


    The goal of the event is to inspire students to become connected to their food, acquire valuable lifetime culinary skills, encourage cooking with friends/family and learn how to develop flavors in different and in a healthy way.

    New for the 2017 Iron Chef Competition:


    Due to an overwhelming response each year, once we have closed our applications and filled all the teams in each category we will be implementing a new way to be a part of our Annual Iron Chef Competition.  Our School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) would like to invite students in Grades 1-6 to be a participant in our At Home Iron Chef Team Competition.  These teams will be virtual participants.  Each team will consist of 3-5 team members in two competing grade categories: Grades 1-3 and Grades 4-6.  You will come up with your original recipe and create together to make your recipe at home.  Then submit a written version along with a picture of the finished recipe to our SHAC Committee electronically. Our SHAC committee will go thru each recipe submission and award one at home winner in Grades 1-3 and one at home winner in Grades 4-6.  This winning team will be guaranteed a slot in next years (2018) Iron Chef live competition. Have fun & happy cooking!!!
