ROME, N.Y. — The NY Beef Council, in association with the Beef Checkoff Funded Veal – Discover Delicious recently facilitated the NY Veal Collegiate Culinary Competition. Teams of students from colleges across New York competed in serving up their unique consumer friendly veal culinary creations.
Students were tasked with preparing and presenting with photos and video a consumer-friendly veal recipe. Students were also tasked with watching a virtual veal tour to gain greater understanding of how veal is raised. After the virtual tour, one student stated, “I was happily surprised at how well maintained and taken care of the calves are.” After students were immersed in a virtual farm tour, they were able to allow their creative sides loose as they created a veal recipe of their own.
This year’s winning team was from the Culinary Institute of New York at Monroe College’s School of Hospitality Management. Team members were Shyla Billie, Kupae Harrison and Morena Hernandez. The teams winning recipe was Potato and Veal Bolognese. Each student on the team received a $500 dollar scholarship for their delicious winning creation.
