Honey Cook-Off

Get ready to show off your culinary skills to the Frontier RTP community. Here’s the catch: H-O-N-E-Y. Come up with a creative dish that incorporates RTP Honey, the special ingredient. Think like a Chopped Chef from the Food Network! Judges (our community) will vote based on most creative use of honey & best tasting dish. 

Did you know: The Frontier RTP Campus has three beehives, tended to by Bee Downtown? Our girls (the bees) are such hard workers that Bee Downtown was able to harvest 88lbs+ of honey from our hives in 2018. Each year we try to come up with fun and creative ways to use it, like making a mead with Honey Girl Meadery, passing out jarred honey to our tenants, brewing our very own “Swarmtrooper” beer with Bombshell Beer Company, and now, a honey cooking competition! All contestants of the Honey Cook-Off will be given a jar of their very own RTP Honey to prepare their dish with!

Mark your calendars, and be early!

  • We have selected 8 contestants from our community to participate!
  • The first 100 people to arrive at Home Base will be able to taste creations on the day of the event.
