I don't think that it explicitly states that, but why would you want to have anything other than fresh garnish? Wouldn't "stale" garnish be brown and unattractive?

The fresher, and the darker the green, without wilting the better.

That of course is for those sanctioning bodies and unsanctioned competitions that allow it... Many dont.

I imagine you could use dried parsley, but I have a feeling the judges would be a little upset after picking it off the bottom of the meat.

Curious, in the vein of "judge it as it's presented", are you allowed to "pick it off"? I would imagine not, but then, there are a lot of exceptions to basic fundamental tenets.

GREAT point Hance!!! I never thought about it that way! In other words, if parsley sticks to the chicken/ribs/etc., DON'T PICK IT OFF, Apparently that is the way the cook team wants it to be judged. If they didn't want it judged, then they shouldn't put it in the box.

Joking obviously, but good point!

Well, what I was thinking that could be a nitch in the synthetic field, like artificial grass, a perfectly colored arranged and sized to the comp box that looked just like real parsley., no muss no fuss just perfect and it won't stick to the food.

For KCBS, the rules only state that Garnish is optional and then states what type of garnish is acceptable. Fake parsley would get a team disqualified as being a foreign object.

Anything synthetic would be considered a foreign object and probably get you DQ'd.

If you could find a way to genetically engineer parsley to grow like sod on a sod farm where it grows 1 inch high and dense like a golf course putting green, and you could cut 9x9" squares, you'd be in the money.

I would hope one of the basic fundamental tenets is common sense.

if garnish is optional, KCBS should just pre build the boxes with a piece of padded up astroturf, level the playing field

I'd be all about GMO parsley! I was talking with teammates about this exact thing the last time I worked on parsley for a turn in box.
