The Tenth Annual Culinary Competition this past Wednesday was a huge success with a decent turnout with the Asian team securing the most votes and winning the competition.

Friends and family had to pay a $7 admission fee in order to stay and eat for any amount of time between 5:30 and 7:30. The collected admission fees were used to contribute to the scholarship for Consumer Sciences.

Senior Carly Sklar arrived to the event hungry and ready to eat, and recalled, “Overall, the food was really good. There were only a couple dishes I didn’t like, and I went back for seconds for a lot of the food. The fried ice cream was my personal favorite.”

Admits were also given a token to vote for their favorite cuisine once they finished sauntering around the Gifford gym and sampling all of the food options.

The six teams–sponsored by Sodexo–included: FantAsia, City Street Food, Asian Express, Hispanic Cuisine, Bubbie’s Kosher Nosh, and Middle Eastern Cuisine.

Senior Justin Cohen was part of Bubbie’s Kosher Nosh, along with seniors Rebecca Jalowicz and Brianna Gotian. Cohen comments, “The three of us had the idea to start this team just for fun and we all agreed to showcase Jewish culture. Besides making food for 300 people in a matter of three days, I had a pretty positive experience. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to try something new and fun.”
