Chefs Turn Military MREs Into 5-Star Dishes

Stop by on July 19th for the annual M.R.E. Cooking Challenge at the California State Fair. 

This year's event features three rounds of cooking, with a special championship-round twist. All cooking teams will consist of a National Guard chef from a different branch of the military, paired with a veteran from a local Veteran Service Organization. 

They will prepare meals using MREs (Meal, Ready-to-Eat) and limited ingredients and will be judged on taste, presentation, skill level, use of the MRE, showmanship and more.

Steve Wilson, PIO for CalVet and veteran and iHeart employee Karen Poulin talk about the upcoming event:
