Each team had a chef mentor from UND Dining Services. Gefroh, who met with the three finalist teams to critique their menus, said he was impressed with the changes each team made to improve the meal it prepared.
Based on the popular Food Network TV show “Iron Chef,” UND’s competition featured student teams who volunteered to participate. Working with their chef mentors, they created an entrée. For the final competition, the main ingredients were boneless skinless chicken breast, 50 percent reduced sodium Zatarain rice blend and a vegetable of their choice.
Saturday’s campus and community judges were Gefroh, Food and Facilities Chair Kay Hager and Director of Campus Safety and Security Jason Uhlir. Teams were allotted two hours to prepare their dishes and present them to the judges.
