Syracuse University’s Department of Nutrition and Hospitality Management within the College of Human Services and Health Professions will hold its first “Orange Chef” competition Friday, April 20, from noon-5 p.m. in the department’s newly renovated kitchens located on the second floor in Lyman Hall.
The culinary challenge will be very similar to The Food Network’s “Iron Chef” television show. “Orange Chef” will feature several local guest chefs, including Kevin Gentile of Gentile’s Restaurant; Gregory Rhoads of the Aurora Inn, Aurora, N.Y.; Bill Collins of B.C. Restaurant; Chris Kuhns of Phoebe’s Restaurant; Randy Coleman of the Inn Between Restaurant; and Chance Bear of the Lincklaen House Inn in Cazenovia. Each guest chef will complete their team with two student sous chefs.
Each Orange Chef team will be given a list of ingredients and one hour to create a complete three-course meal. The panel of judges will decide who will be awarded the title “Orange Chef.” Judges are cooking author Lisa Maffiore and Jerry Bolton from the Oncenter.
In 2006, HSHP completed $2.25 million worth of renovations in the classroom kitchens, providing students with the latest professional-grade equipment and facilities.
