All Day Masterchef Competition (Multi-Day Event)

This week, Star Wars takes over the Masterchef competition!

This week, we don't have a secret ingredient. Instead, we're challenging our Jedi-chefs to create a Star Wars-related dish. It can be in the shape of a character, be named after something in the Star Wars franchise, it could be Pulled Porg Sandwiches, C3P Spaghetti O's, or Baby Yoda's Bone Broth... let the Force guide your decisions and culinary skills.

We don't recommend using your Light Saber to cut chop and dice your ingredients... we hear that's how you could lose a hand.

The top three dishes, as voted by the Laurier community, will receive a $20 gift card.

To sign-up, send us a direct message to @locusbrantford or @locuswaterloo on Instagram and send your dish photo and recipe by Thursday May 7 at 11:59pm
Instagram voting Period: Friday April 10
Winner Announced: Friday April 10 at 7:00pm EST
