Five teams battle it out for the Iron Chef title








On Nov. 19, five teams gathered in the Rally Court for Iron Chef Cook-off, a lunchtime event based on Food Network’s, “Iron Chef”. Teams frantically worked to whip up their dishes, each of which was potato-based. At the end of the allotted cooking time, judges sampled each team’s food, and, after much deliberation, awarded first place to Team Koochook, which consisted of Biology and Physiology teacher Pooya Hajjarian, and seniors Sonika Singh, Michelle Hara and Nicolet Danese.

The Teams:

Team Fromage: Members: Sophomores Vishnu Narayana and Rohan Prakash; Senior Viktorie Reichova; French teacher Lise Gabet. Food prepared: potato curry sandwich and soup
