Ready, set, chop! On Saturday, March 22, over 270 middle and high school students will compete in the state’s seventh annual Junior Iron Chef competition. This year, organizers are taking the program to new heights.In 2008, Vermont Food Education Every Day (VT FEED, a partnership of NOFA-VT, Shelburne Farms, and, at the time, Food Works at Two Rivers Center) and the Burlington School Food Project (BSFP) founded one of the first youth culinary competitions to focus on local food and school meals. Guided by coaches – local chefs, food service directors, and teachers, student teams create original recipes that incorporate at least five local vegetables and follow USDA school meal standards. This year, teams have the added challenge of sourcing all their ingredients themselves. With these rigorous guidelines, youth contestants work through real-life challenges similar to those food service face creating healthy, nutritious meals for schools.The day of the competition, teams will have just 90 minutes to prepare their kid-tested, local fare. Rainbow Root Latkes with Apple Compote, Rootin’-Tootin’ Root Veggie and Black Bean Burritos with Basil Tortillas and Zesty Yogurt Sauce, and Maple Spiced Apple and Goat Cheese Crepes are just a few of the dishes on this year’s menu.“JIC VT helps us create school programs that do more than teach cooking skills, recipe development, and local sourcing,” said Lonny Paige, Twin Valley Schools Food Service Director and the coach of three JIC VT 2013 winning teams. “It teaches our students how they can contribute to community. Our kids are now culinary role models, initiating demonstrations and cooking local farm-fresh foods within Twin Valley schools and for organizations like the Brattleboro Hospice.” JIC VT winning teams will have the opportunity to prepare their recipes for legislators in the Vermont Statehouse on April 8. Their dishes will also be featured on school lunch menus around the state.Under the guidance of Chef Jim Birmingham of the New England Culinary Institute, the 24 JIC VT judges include Secretary of the Vermont Agency of Education Rebecca Holcombe, former Vermont Governor Madeline Kunin, food service staff, students, farmers, and chefs.Recently called “the farm-to-school capital of the world” in Edible Manhattan, Vermont has some of the longest-standing farm to school programs in the country. Since its founding, JIC VT has more than doubled the number of participants with teams coming from every corner of the state. The growth and success of JIC VT is attributed to the dedication to farm to school by the state’s food service professionals, nonprofit organizations, and policymakers.The 7th Annual JIC VT will take place from 9:00am to 3:30pm and will be held at the Champlain Valley Expo Center in Essex Junction, VT. Cost for attendance is $3 for an individual, $5 for a family. JIC VT is sponsored by School Nutrition Association of Vermont, Vermont Agency of Agriculture Food & Markets, G.housen, Circulon gourmet cookware, Blodgett, and WCAX.

The crane track for a gantry crane needed to be replaced, since the excavator components it moves are becoming even larger and heavier. By replacing a total of eight girders on the gantry crane system it was possible to double its lifting capacity to 40 tonnes. The two cranes were used to safely hoist and install each of the girders that weighed six tonnes each. Due to space restrictions inside the hangar, the two LTC 1045-3.1 models were fitted with an assembly jib. It was not possible to use a hook block. The compact cranes proved to be ideally suited to working in constricted spaces. www.liebherr.comwww.schmidbauer-group.com

EA Sports has announced the introduction of in-game jerseys for esports organisations that compete in FIFA 19.All FIFA Ultimate Team players received a free pack containing all 13 special edition esports jerseys on November 1st.The teams that will get their own in-game jerseys are as follows:VitalityTeam LiquidTeam EnvySK GamingScarzRogueNewbeeNatus VincereMKERSMilleniumMad LionsHashtag UnitedFUTWIZThe selection of organisations and teams come from a variety of regions and countries, meaning you can represent your area pretty well. The selection includes competitors from Japan, France, the Netherlands, the United States of America, Germany, the United Kingdom, China, Ukraine, Italy, and Spain.This announcement follows soon after two major football competitions entered esports in a big way. The Premier League previously announced the ePremier League, an esports tournament involving all of the 20 teams that compete in the top flight of English football. The Superliga competition followed with the eSuperliga, another FIFA 19 competition that will involve the teams from the top Danish league.The biggest competition in FIFA esports is undoubtedly the FIFA eWorld Cup, in which the aforementioned tournaments act as official qualifiers.Esports Insider says: The rise of in-game items representing actual esports teams is on the rise, and it’s good to see EA Sports get involved in this trend with FIFA 19. The likes of PUBG introduced in-game hoodies around the time of its landmark PUBG Global Invitational event earlier this year, for example. Of course it’s a shame that more organisations and squads aren’t represented at this point, but it’s early days so if this is received well then who knows what’ll happen in the future! Perhaps a revenue-sharing initiative would be a good inclusion in the future if more jerseys are rolled out.Subscribe to ESI on YouTube
