Six states, six winners and one national winner
This year’s National Collegiate Veal Competition had so many great, creative and delicious entries that it was not easy to choose the winners. Beginning in February, culinary students from six states chose to enter a veal recipe contest for scholarships. Beef Checkoff-funded Veal – Discover Delicious and State Beef Councils have partnered to host this competition for culinary students across six states!
Participating culinary students had to watch an online video to learn about the humane practices of today’s veal farmers. After watching this virtual farm tour, the cooking students headed into the kitchen to create a unique recipe that would work for a restaurant entree menu.
The competition was tough, but this year’s state winners are:
Arizona State Winner: Leslie Lecomte of the Arizona Culinary Institute won with her Wienerschnitzel Bites with Lemon & Tarragon Mustard
Florida State Winner: Miami Dade Community College’s Brejean Guzman won with his Veal Egg Rolls
New York State Winner: Nathan Roof of Finger Lakes Community College won with his Lemon Parmesan Grilled Veal
Ohio State Winner: Andrea Lazos of Cincinnati State Technical & Community College won with his Ginger Veal Wontons with Tamarind Sauce
Texas State Winner: Dallas College’s Sharday Melvine won with her veal chops and polenta with a sweet and spicy pepper sauce
Wisconsin State Winner: Jasmine Bylander of Chippewa Valley Technical College with sticks and dip
