MCPL Chopped Challenge

9:00 AM - 9:00 PM
All Branches
Tap into your creative side in this cooking challenge! Register to receive a take-home kit with three mystery ingredients and three cookbooks to borrow. Make a dish using all three ingredients (plus any others you want to use), then post a picture and description on social media by Wednesday, November 30.

The winner will win a gift card to a local restaurant. We will be unable to accommodate dietary restrictions, as all participants will receive the same ingredients. If you are unable to eat one of the ingredients, you are welcome to substitute something similar. Make sure to tag @MCPLIndiana and use the hashtag #MCPLChopped. Additionally, please send a picture of your entry to mhutt@mcpl.info. Age 18 and up.
