MOUNT VERNON — Two senior students in the chef and catering program at Knox County Career Center placed third in the recent 2013 cook off sponsored by the Northeast Ohio Pork Producers — Maggie Hale from Mount Vernon and Elizabeth Brierley from Fredericktown.
The annual Culinary Affair with Pork, held this year at Wayne County Schools Career Center, gives students a chance to show off their culinary ability and also serves as a fun and tasty way to promote the use of pork.
Each student had to submit an original pork recipe with a menu that included a pork recipe. They were then judged on creativity, whether the recipe was written correctly and how it fit in with the menu; they had to balance their menu. Three different chefs judged the menus. Those scores were averaged and the top 10 were chosen for the cook off, with that menu being dictated by the judges.
Hale won with her recipe for peach barbecue pork sandwich, and Brierley’s winning recipe was Hawaiian barbecue panini.
