Speaking of sandwiches, like the tasty creations from today's Food & Wine cover story, the California Food Literacy Center has issued a challenge to all K-12 students in the state. Young people from around the state are invited to submit a sandwich recipe, and then pen a short essay about how this sandwich exemplifies "food literacy" principles. These could relate to issues of nutrition, sustainability, local farming and other issues that would make Alice Waters beam.
So students, whip up those sandwiches and those essays, and get them in from Sept. 2 - 8. Finalists will be showcased on the California Food Literacy Center's web site and Facebook page. A team of judges will then announce the winners in each of the four age categories on Sept. 29.
