Culinary Students Tie For First Place!
Paolo Campbell (4th quarter) and Jihoon Sun (3rd quarter) tied for first place when they competed in the Washington State Potato Commission Recipe Contest hosted by Renton Technical College. Paolo presented an Asian Brandade Cod Cake. Jihoon made a Potato Croquette Stuffed with Thai spiced curry containing Shrimp and Scallops topped with fried quail egg and garnished with fresh lime. Recipes were judged on creativity, flavor, presentation, use of potato/potato products and practicality. The top 12 recipes and their creators will be featured in a recipe book to be developed by the Washington State Potato Commission (WSPC), as well as in local publicity and in the foodservice magazines. The top 12 winners will be invited to a professional photography studio in Seattle to assist in preparing their recipes for the booklet. In addition, Paolo and Jihoon received $750.00 in prize money.
