Teams prepared a three-course meal for a table of eight as well as plates for viewing and judging. The University Club provided the judges for the event.
CACC Guidance Counselor Amelia Fagiolo sat at table one with a meal prepared by apprentice Casey Rotert and current CACC student Heather Pitt. Said Fagiolo: "Our food was delicious! As someone who loves food and watching TV shows like Iron Chef and Chopped, it was cool to experience the process in real life."
Ultimately, the duo of apprentice Scott Gestring and CACC student Bianca Mello came out on top with their Smoked Trout Profiterole, Stuffed Pork Loin, and Raspberry, Marscapone, and Pistachio Tart. The two won an all expense paid dinner, valued at $200.00 plus the opportunity to help out in one of the top kitchens in either St. Louis or Kansas City.
