Mystery Competition Has Culinary Students Cooking For Scholarships

NORFOLK, Va. – (November 17, 2008) – Thirty students at the Culinary Institute of Virginia, the School of Culinary Arts at ECPI College of Technology, will race against the clock—and each other—in a Mystery Basket culinary competition November 21, from 8 am until 12:30 pm. Two-person teams will have 90 minutes to prepare a three-course meal that will be judged by local culinary professionals. And what will they be cooking? Not even the competitors know!

The ingredients available for use will be unveiled moments before the cooking begins from the mystery baskets. Students will be scored in areas such as: creativity, technical difficulty, flavor, and the presentation of each menu item. The top three teams will be awarded scholarships worth a total of $2,000 (and bragging rights over their classmates).
