Bidwell Training Center to host student cook-off with Fifth Season as partner

Bidwell Training Center’s Culinary Arts and Horticulture Technology students, staff and faculty at Fifth Season.

Bidwell Training Center‘s (BTC) Culinary Arts and Horticulture Technology seniors will battle against one another in a cook-off. The event will mimic the famous competition show Chopped on Food Network. Each student must prepare a spectacular salad. The catch? They have to use Fifth Season, powered by RoBotany‘s flagship Bridge City Blend, create their own salad dressing and prepare seven servings of the dish in 30 minutes. Students must impress the judges in order to avoid getting “chopped,” meaning eliminated from the competition, in order to advance to the final cook-off round. Other requirements include:

  • a maximum of 4 “mix-in” ingredients can be used
  • total ingredient cost must be no more than 75 cents per ounce
  • participants must create a name for their salad and creative description

In the final cook-off round, students will be given a secret set of ingredients for an impromptu creation. The winner of the competition will receive a dinner for two at Superior Motors and a shadowing session with General Manager of Fifth Season Tejas Rane and Executive Chef of Superior Motors Brian Little.
