Dean College hosts Iron Chef competition


Students at Dean College in Massachusetts are offered a wide range of academic and extra-curricular opportunities. For example, the school once held an Iron Chef contest, Wicked Local reports.

Based on the hit TV show, Will O'Leary - a Dean student who organized the event - thought the event would be a fun way for students to gain points for their dormitories. At the end of the year, the dorm with the most points wins a trophy.

A crowd of students watched the three teams - comprised of four students and a staff chef - as they devised a plan, selected ingredients and delegated duties before the clock was set. Each of the teams was required to incorporate a secret ingredient - apples.

Judges walked around, making note of the teams' entrees and organization.

The first team created a chicken stir fry dish, topped with asparagus, while another team went with a beef stew complemented with carrots and squash puree. The third team made a vegetarian tofu stir-fry seasoned with cinnamon.

Student judge Remy Lory said, "it was cool to see how everything got organized. They all ended up taking a different approach," quotes the news source

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, overall employment of professionals in food service is expected to continue to increase.
