Posted October 26, 2012

The Union Program Council of Idaho State University is holding ISU's first "Top Chef," a live cooking challenge, at 9 p.m. Nov. 2 in the Pond Student Union Ballroom.

The UPC has created this event to provide opportunities for ISU students to showcase their culinary skills, while other students may enjoy the fruit of their labor.

Libby Howe will emcee this entertaining event. Dishes will be judged live by Matt Bloxham, Associated Students of ISU president; Linda Rankin, assistant dean health sciences; and Rob Wiscomb, owner, operator, head chef of Cafe Tuscano. Audience members will also have an opportunity to taste dishes and vote for their favorite.

Along with the entertainment of watching students compete in a live cooking challenge the event will feature for the audience a personal pizza-making station, cotton candy-making station, make-your-own drink station, multiple raffle prizes and free T-shirts for the first 150 students.

The event is free to students with valid Bengal Cards and is $5 for non-students.
