They chopped, sautéed, and seasoned at West Virginia Wesleyan on Tuesday all in hopes of winning the school’s first Iron Chef competition.
Something that started at colleges in the Midwest is now here, thanks to the school’s Chef Patrick.
“I was transferred here three years ago and we just thought we’d try it out at Wesleyan. It’s a little bit bigger school, it’s a little bit easier to promote the idea,” said Executive Chef Patrick O’Brien.
Each team had 30 minutes to prepare dishes for the judges using the four secret ingredients: jumbo shrimp, andouille sausage, orange marmalade, and marshmallow cream.
