It’s a state-sanctioned kitchen, where we have about 30 chefs who are going to come in and cook steak. They will be able to choose their cut of meat and then they will have a large group of judges who have already been chosen, so the smell of steak will fill the air tomorrow… so there is just a bit of something for everyone, and lots of stuff for the kids too,” explained Erin Turner, Webb City Community Development Manager.
