Each high school will have 2 hours to complete 3 different courses, (appetizer, main course, and dessert) with an Asian or Latin theme. IHCC staff will have all teams draw numbers to determine the order in which they will begin. The first team will begin preparing their courses at 9AM, with another team joining in every 15 minutes until all teams have joined in by 10:30AM. (This will give each team exactly 2 hours and ensure that the judges are ready for them when they their time is up).
