GRCC Culinary Student in Prestigious S. Pellegrino Collegiate Hot Food Competition


This week, Sasha Ahmed, GRCC’s team culinary coach, (who took our team to first place last spring in Boyne even above the professionals) took one of our student culinary team memebers, Derek Warren, to Chicago for the S. Pellegrino collegiate hot food competition.  The competition is an invitation-only affair and was earned as a result of GRCC’s fantastic reputation.  A win here could send the team to the National Finals in Las Vegas.

The competition is being held at Kendal Culinary College in Chicago. Derek will be featuring his families blueberries from their blueberry farm here in Michigan as well as featuring his lamb dish. In two hours he must present eight perfect and identical plates from scratch.  More information available here.
