Campus Chefs Compete in Winter Olympics Culinary Competition

Tuesday, February 04, 2014

 

As the globe's foremost athletes march shivering towards Sochi to compete in the 2014 Winter Olympic Games, campus chefs from five schools throughout the region will prepare to do battle for their own version of the coveted gold.

The executive chefs for host Curry College, along with Mitchell College, Providence College, Babson College, and Dean College will congregate to see who will come out on top in the cook-off. The parameters are simple: each chef, joined by one sous chef, will prepare cuisine from a different nation represented in the Winter Olympics. All recipes used in the competition must be submitted in advance and must equal the average plate cost for a student meal plan.

A Deep Lineup of Delicious Cuisine

Providence College's Chef Denise Meicke will be representing Lithuania. She will be using local farm raised pork, potatoes, barley, rye, beets, and mushrooms to create Lithuanian staples. It is unknown at present whether she will opt for the classic pierogi (a dumpling dish); the blynai, or even kibnai (a meat stuffed pastry).

Babson College's Chef Bill Bailey will cook for Japan. Chef Bailey will be using dash (fish and Kombu stock) seas weed shoots and buckwheat noodles cooked in Gyokura tea, among other items.

Curry College's Chef Christian King's cuisine will hail from the Dominican Republic. Chef King is expected to turn in a colorful array of sofrito (a mixture of local herbs and spices) as well as the yucca, plantains, potatoes, and a variety of other mouth-watering delicacies.

Dean College's Chef Marc Needham will be representing India in the competition. The chef has indicated a love for betel nut, fermented fruit, pickled mango and spiced yogurt, as Needham harnesses India's five thousand year culinary history and diversity to blaze a trail towards the gold.

Finally, Mitchell College's Chef Tim Quinn will be cooking for the United States. A Connecticut native, insiders are pegging Quinn to highlight sustainable ingredients true to his flinty roots, including Rhode Island seafood, Maine potatoes, Connecticut apples and polenta, cider from Massachusetts, and pork from North East Family Farms. Truly a delicious dose of homestyle New England cooking.

During the competition, students at Curry will have the chance for face time and dialogue with the chefs, as well as samples of their offerings and even more varieties of ethnic cuisine available for dinnertime sampling.

Bronze, silver and gold metals will be allotted for People's Choice (voted on by the students) and Culinary Excellence (which will be ascertained by a panel of judges). Medal ceremonies will begin at 6:45pm, capping a delicious day and giving participants and judges a chance to digest.
