Mighty Mentors & Pepper Proteges
WHAT is that?
On October 2, Briar Chapel‘s 9th Annual Pepper Festival is spicing up the agenda with its inaugural Kid Chef Competition! Six of the Triangle’s top chefs pair up with aspiring kid chefs to compete for title of “Pint-Sized Pepper King or Queen.”
We snapped this shot at the first meet and greet between chefs and kiddos as they sliced, diced, tasted and tried the gamut of pepper flavors and plotted their recipes for the festival.
