Cougars in the Kitchen Cookbook
The Health Promotion Committee is creating a custom Cougars in the Kitchen cookbook of tried-and-true recipes from our very own PCY community. These cookbooks will be professionally published and contain special pages of interest, a table of contents, a thorough index, and lots of helpful hints from parents and kids like you. It is sure to be treasured for years to come.
We encourage families to enter multiple recipes, and we will try to include at least one recipe from each family. Submission does NOT guarantee entry into the finished book. EVERY member of the PCY community is encouraged to submit recipes, from kinders to teachers to grandparents! Pictures, photos and artwork can be sent via email to CougarsInTheKitchen@gmail.com. If your recipe is handwritten, you can leave a copy in the basket in the PCY front office with the Chef's Name and Recipe Title. RECIPES ARE DUE OCTOBER 10TH, 2015!

Iron Chef Competition

Interested in being crowned PCY Iron Chef? Excited to compete against fellow masters in student and adult divisions? The Iron Chef Contest is sponsored by the Health Promotion Committee with the goal of generating meals as delicious as they are good for you. All entries must conform to nutrition standards from the Harvard School of Public Health. More details are provided on the Cougars in the Kitchen cookbook submission form.
