La Brigade students win 1st and 2nd place in Kendall College Ready Set Cook competition
Four Restaurant Management students competed in Kendall College's Ready Set Cook competition on November 12th. The students were given the mystery basket ingredients of salmon, Brussels sprouts, and fingerling potatoes and had an hour and fifteen minutes to plan, cook and plate their dish. There were six teams of students from area high schools that participated.
York students Katherine Diamond and Carys Hund won first place, and Matt Arnieri and Catherine Kent won second place. The judges were very impressed with all the dishes but the York dishes stood out due to their execution of cooking methods, seasoning of food, knife skills, and use of ingredients.
Students were coached and judged by Kendall College staff Chef Brian Schreiber and Chef Karin Davis and guest chef Joshua Kelp, founder of the Sunday Dinner Club and chef-owner of the restaurant Honey Butter Fried Chicken in Chicago.
