|Watch out "Iron Chef"
here come the Governor's Scholars
RELEASED: July 25, 2001
DANVILLE, KY Last week aromatic smells were drifting out of Cowan, Centre's dining hall. Governor's Scholars in Fumie Bouvier's class were in a cook-off modeled after the "Iron Chef" television show on The Food Channel.
In the real "Iron Chef Show," chefs are given certain foods and have an hour to create a masterpiece meal. In Ms. Bouvier's class the students were given a little more time to prepare. There were two teams and each had to prepare a main dish with chicken, vegetables and a dessert. After all the preparation, the teams were judged by a panel of fellow students and the manager of food services in Cowan.
"Home away from home" was the theme of one team. They made fried chicken, mashed potatoes, fried summer squash, tossed salad and homemade apple fritters drizzled with chocolate.
The other team fixed chicken stir-fry with curried vegetables, Japanese noodles, fruit salad and homemade peach pie.
Best of all, both teams were winners as a tie was declared.
This is the 19th year for Governor's Scholars program at Centre College. This is the last week of their five-week stay on campus. The 340 students have studied a variety of topics selecting from themes such as "The Fine Arts," "Biological Issues" or "Historical Analysis." Clarence Wyatt, the Pottinger Associate Professor of History at Centre and special assistant to the president, was the campus director of the GSP at Centre this year.
