Living Earth Festival at NMAI features Native cooking contest

The third annual Living Earth Festival at the National Museum of the American Indian features a cooking competition between two Native chefs.

Rob Kinneen (Tlingit) and Jack Strong (Siletz) will compete on Sunday. They will each prepare appetizers, entrees and desserts using a "secret" ingredient and will be judged by local chefs.

This year's "secret" ingredient is heirloom tomatoes, The Coast River Business Journal reported.
