Yours truly has been selected as a “semi finalist” in the Chefs of Grey Poupon Recipe Scholarship contest for my school! (In quotes only because I have no idea how many people entered nor how many are going on the the next round. I only know I am.) Every year GP sponsors a recipe contest among the nation’s culinary schools. This year the top prize is $5000, and I am only competing against current students at my school.
The theme is a “healthy fish” dish that features Grey Poupon as an ingredient. I shan’t reveal the recipe I put together just yet in case this blog somehow violates a “not previously published” regulation, but I’m pretty pleased with myself since I’m only in week 3, and could be conceivably competing again people in week 23.
I’ll be competing in an honest-to-goodness, Top Chef style cook-off on Monday morning, recreating and plating my recipe in 2 hours.
Thanks to Cara, Larry, and Carrie (say that 5 times fast) for being taste testers last week!
