Friday, April 6th in The Commons at 8:00pm
There will be 3 five-person teams and each will consist of 2 Campus Restaurant Kitchen team members, and a combination of student, faculty/staff/administrator. Each team will be given a mystery basket of ingredients. They must use each item in cooking but DO NOT need to use the total amount of each item.
Each team will have access to a pantry of staple ingredients (flour, onions, garlic). They will have a chance to view the items in the pantry while they are creating the menu.
A written menu needs to be submitted after 15 minutes of receiving the ingredients.
Cooking Time = 1 hour
Plating begins after the hour and will be set by the judge, 15 minutes maximum time limit.
1) Each Team must present 2 courses - one appetizer or starter and an entrée.
2) Three portions of each course must be presented.
3) One plate will be kept for presentation and the other 2 are for the tasting judges.
Presentation = 25 pts.
Creativity = 25 pts.
Taste = 50 pts.
We will contact contestants the week of March 19th — before Spring Break
