Masonicare Chefs Take Home Top Honors at Chef's Challenge
March 11, 2015Three Masonicare chefs received top honors at the Connecticut Assisted Living Association's annual conference and Chef's Challenge on March 5 at the Crown Plaza Conference Center in Cromwell.
This year, in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Connecticut Assisted Living Association, chefs from assisted living communities around the state competed in true "Iron Chef" fashion to show off their facility culinary skills. The competition was broken down into Beef, Poultry and Seafood Entrée Categories. Chefs were given 15 minutes to prepare, and then 45 minutes to cook and plate 5 servings. The chefs and their dishes were judged on taste, presentation, creativity, preparation, cleanliness and organization, complication of meal, and timing.
Congratulations to our Masonicare chefs for their efforts and creative culinary skills:
Chef Jules Martin, Masonicare at Ashlar Village First place, Beef Entrée Grilled Skirt Steak with a Cilantro Lime Cream Sauce and Sweet Potato Succotash
Chef Carol Koty, Masonicare at Newtown- Lockwood Lodge First Place, Poultry Entrée Classic Thai Pho Chicken Soup
Sous Chef Jeffrey Camputaro, Masonicare Health Center Third Place, Beef Entrée Filet of Beef with Southwest Sweet Potato Hash, Poached Egg and Chipotle Hollandaise
