A Clash of Cooks

The EGSA Community Committee’s “A Clash of Cooks,” will be held this Thursday, March 9th, in the Stern Lounge starting at noon.  All of the delicious entries the English graduate students have prepared, from Goat Cheese and Scallion Tarts, Guiness Molasses Bread, and Spaghetti Squash Pad Thai to Chicken Biriyani, Sausage and Spinach Quiche, and Coconut Cream Pie, will be available for a mere $4.99! Check out the menu to see what our talented competitors are bringing to the table!

Doors will open in the Stern at 12:00 and stay open until about 1:30. Dishes will be labeled in order to account for allergies and dietary restrictions. Drinks are provided. Remember, if you’ve participated in the contest, you do not need to pay the admission fee!

Another reminder: distinguished judges will award prizes for the winner in three categories: appetizer (or side), main dish, and dessert.

This year, we will also be introducing a People’s Choice Award. We will have a ballot box set up, and everyone (grad students and faculty alike!) will be able to vote for their favorite dish in any of the categories. The most votes wins the prize! People who have entered dishes in the Cook-off will be eligible to vote, and yes, you can vote for yourself.

This event is a great space to enjoy wonderful food with colleagues. It has raised a lot of money for EGSA in the past, and we are hoping it will be just as successful this year!
