Meredith College organized its first Iron Chef Competition on Nov. 18 in 144/146 Martin Hall.
Based on the popular Food Network show, students are required to prepare and serve a three course meal for 30 people using local food. The Farmers Market Challenge will be judged by a panel of four.
Guests enjoyed a local and seasonal three-course meal featuring: roasted pork tenderloin with braised apples, winter greens, and root vegetable medley, or the vegetarian option, which features parpadelle pasta with caramelized butternut squash, goat cheese, and toasted pecans.
Iron Chef Meredith was sponsored by Meredith’s Department of Human Environmental Sciences and the Foods & Nutrition Program. For more information contact Ronni Bowen Westbrook at RLBWestbrook@meredith.edu.
