Lanphier Hosts Iron Chef Competition
Most of us have seen the TV show Iron Chef. Today, 26 students took a stab at their own versions of the show at Lanphier High School, using rules similar to the show's. It was complete with a secret ingredient of pecorino/Romano cheese.
The competition is a culmination of a nine-week cooking course that benefits everyone from those with just a mild interest in cooking to students heading on to culinary school.
"Most people who come into the class, when they start freshman year or sophomore year, don't really know how to cook," Lanphier senior Robert Fagg said. "So they're exploring cooking. And also, if you want to move on next year to the culinary arts, which is where some of the students are actually going at Lincoln Land, it's going to help them so they're prepared to go into next year."
The winners received personalized chef's jackets, mini cheese graters, and Iron Chef champion t-shirts.
This was the fourth year of the competition.
