“Chopped” Machon version: the pear challenge
And the secret ingredient is…. pears! With 40 minutes on the clock, each Machon tzrif (bunk), grabbed their ingredients from the pantry provided by tzevet (staff) and divided into four special areas to come up with fantastic, creative and tasty creations that highlighted pears.
Each tzrif was given cooking implements and had access to stove and oven. They were tasked with devising their own food creations using the ingredients that they had grabbed from the pantry and their imaginations.
Pear salad, potato pancakes with pear and apple compote, pear fritters, popcorn with pear flavoring, pear turnover/borekas…..what a delicious, fun and sweet evening.
