Great, we’d love to have you! You can go to our Contest Page and e-mail any of the contest organizers listed there for a cook team application. Just don’t wait until the last minute. Many of our contests are sold out months in advance. Once you’ve cooked one FBA contest you will then be in our database and each new contest organizer will receive a mailing label for your cook team to automatically send you an invitation. While it’s not a requirement to cook in an FBA contest, in order to be considered for Team of the Year points or to cook in our Triple Crown Contest the head cook of your team MUST be an FBA member. Click here for the membership application.
There are two things you can and should do before setting out on your own, though. The first is to take an FBA Judge’s Seminar and judge at least one contest. This will give you an idea of what to cook and how to pack a turn-in box. The other is to ask one of the cook teams who regularly compete if you can cook with them. You’ll learn more from an established cook team than you will any other way.
