Mushrooms Canada and Ontario Sheep Farmers present the 2020 Student Chef Challenge Recipe Booklet
In 2020, Mushrooms Canada and Ontario Lamb hosted a Student Chef Challenge at Durham College. This challenge showcased how the flavours from fresh Ontario mushrooms and Ontario lamb combine deliciously to produce outstanding dishes. The competition was open to student teams from Ontario College Culinary Management programs.
Each participating college team had to submit one (1) recipe and accompanying recipe photo to be considered for the on-site cook-off competition; Mushrooms Canada and Ontario Lamb then selected the top 6 recipe submissions. The top 6 finalist teams were invited to prepare their mushroom and lamb recipes at an in-person cook-off at Durham College. A panel of judges from the food industry tasted and examined all of the finalists’ recipes at the cook-off and determined a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners. We thank all the Ontario College Culinary Management Programs who participated in 2020 for sharing their knowledge, skills and recipes for this challenge.
