PICA Students Show their Culinary ‘Mussel’ at the 14th Annual Hot Competition Live!

by Giulia Vendramin, posted on June 8, 2010

Six Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts students competed in the BC Chefs Association 14th Annual Hot Competition Live! at the BC Foodservice Expo (April 2010).  This post-secondary, culinary student competition instructed competitors to create a mussel-based dish that was not only visually appealing and appetizing, but also met the parameters of the Heart & Stroke Foundation’s Health Check program.  

In their heats, students were commended and presented with medals: 

Bronze: Matt Garvey
Silver: Whitney Wright, Lily Liu, Clayton Bennett, Mark Gunther
Gold: Stavro Korogonas

At the conclusion of the tough two-day competition,  third place overall was awarded to PICA student, Stavro Korogonas.  Stavro was presented his prize cheque by BC Premier, the honourable Gordon Campbell.

Congratulations to all our students!
