Marquette University Student Government, the Center for Health Education and Promotion and Sodexo will host an interactive iron chef competition on Friday, March 22, from 7-9 p.m. in the AMU’s Marquette Place. Teams of four students will each be assigned one Sodexo chef and given select ingredients. With these foods and a limited amount of time, teams will compete against one another to make an appetizer, entree, dessert and drink. A group of esteemed Marquette faculty and staff will judge the dishes and pronounce one lucky team the Iron Chef winner.
This year, however, the competition does not stop with the students chefs. Audiences members will have the opportunity to participate in quick challenges throughout the competition. Winners of the quick challenges will earn secret ingredients that they can then give to the team of their choice, helping to take their dish to the next level.
Gift cards to local restaurants, including Marquette’s very own Sobelman's, will be given away as prizes to audience members and Iron Chef challengers. Live performances from junior Eric Basta and senior Charlie Giger will provide entertainment throughout the night.
Start with an intense cooking competition, add in a few audience challenges, a pinch of live entertainment and a healthy of dose of exciting prizes and you get MUSG's Iron Chef competition. It’s the perfect recipe for a good Friday night! Students interested in having an Iron Chef team should contact Amy Melichar from the Center for Health Education and Promotion at firstname.lastname@example.org. This event is free and open to all Marquette students, no ticket required.
