Putting culinary chops and local food knowledge to the test, everyday chefs face off in The Great CSA Smackdown, an exciting city-wide cooking competition for Just Food Network CSAs! CSA members are pitted against each other as they prepare a delicious dish using an assortment of local, seasonal mystery ingredients. With only moments to plan and minutes to cook, competitors rely on their speed, skill, and creativity to make the cut. CSAs host their own competitions to identify their most creative cooks and the winners advance to the finals to compete against teams from other CSAs.
