Fall 2016 Mystery Basket Challenge

Fall 2016 Mystery Basket Challenge

Fall is in full swing and it's that time of the year when Chefs around the country are filling their kitchens with root vegetables, cabbages and winter squash varieties.  Summer's light and bright cuisine is transitioning into more earthy, rustic fare that reminds us all that the holidays are right around the corner!

Fraternity & sorority food never looked so good!

Check out the photos from our amazing Chefs from around the country.  The challenge was to incorporate the following ingredients into the entree:

  • Whole chickens
  • Radish
  • Winter squash
  • Pears
  • Fresh fennel
  • Winter kale
  • Potatoes
  • Fresh ginger

Following this challenge we invited our Chefs and other staff to "rate" each photo that was submitted.  After the voting was in our team decided that the winner was....

....Chef Ezra Wolcott.  Chef Ezra serves the men of ZBT fraternity at the University of Denver.  Besides having cool blue shades Chef Ezra is a master when it comes to photography and he has an extreme passion for great looking (and tasting) food.  

 

A close second place goes to Chef Orion Shelton and his talented crew who absolutely kill it for the women of Sigma Kappa sorority at the University of Arizona.   If you haven't seen the food Chef Orion and his crew are creating you really need to (there are tons of material on our Facebook page).  

 

Rounding out the Top 3 is Chef Rob Bly.  Chef Rob, assisted by his Sous Chef Angelica, does a phenomenal job serving the women of Gamma Phi Beta at the University of Iowa #RidiculouslyGoodFood on a daily basis.
