Competition at the Viking Cooking School in Abt's Design Center

Friday, May 7th, 2010

Each year Kraft Foodservice and Grey Poupon sponsor a competition designed to inspire great chefs of tomorrow. The competition was last night at the Viking Cooking School in Abt’s design center.
Four students from top culinary schools will compete for $30,000 in scholarship money in this year’s live, Chefs of Grey Poupon Student Culinary Competition, judged by the Chefs of Grey Poupon. One of the four chefs is from Chicago’s own Kendall College.

As part of the competition, students received a “mystery” basket of ingredients, which they had to use in the dish they would prepare. Kraft Foodservice let Facebook posters choose the last ingredient included in the basket and black garlic won. Other “mystery” basket ingredients included Miracle Whip, Kraft BBQ Sauce, Pumpernickel Bread, and Planters Peanuts.

Last night Sonali Ruder from the Institute of Culinary Education in NYC prepared the winning dish. She won $20,000 in scholarship funds. Second place and $5,000 went to Joshua Ogrowdowski from Johnson & Wales University in Providence, RI. Third place honors and $3,000 was awarded to Sarah Roberts from Kendall College, and fourth place and $2,000 was given to Brooke Maynard from The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY.
