Escoffier Boulder Student Challenge

Show off your creative quarantine kitchen skills and join Escoffier Boulder’s weekly cooking challenge for your chance to win gift cards to your favorite local restaurants over the next 4 weeks!

How It Works:

Weekly challenges start April 20 and feature a specific cooking theme announced each Monday via email. You’ll have until noon on Friday each week to create a signature dish that showcases the week’s theme and post a photo on instagram with the hashtag #escoffierboulderchallenge to submit your entry. Don’t forget to let us know what the dish is in the caption too!
