Competitor Pantry Order Forms

2013 Kenmore Kitchen Coliseum CompetiorsPlease remember the following things when reviewing the pantry order form.  The Kenmore Kitchen Coliseum categories are:  Bacon, Burger, Dessert, Recipe and Sandwich.  Quantity amounts are generally small because we need to accommodate for almost 200 competitors to have access to the same ingredients.  Obviously, all 200 competitors will not be asking for the same ingredients.  That said, until we know what everyone needs our quantity amounts are conservative.  Once we know what the actual ask amounts are, we'll likely have extra for competitors to use.  We will hold and even out "extras" so that all categories have equal access.
