Five teams of Hiram College students will face off against one another on April 2, 2013, at the annual Hiram College Platinum Chef Competition. The competition will take place from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Dining Hall.

Five teams of five students will partner AVI Fresh chefs and have the chance to show off their culinary skills. The winning team will then go on to compete against student chefs from other colleges (University of Mount Union, Tiffin University, Malone University and Kenyon College) on April 10, 2013 at Kenyon College.

Beach Boyz Entertainment will DJ and emcee the April 2 event. Students not competing in the Platinum Chef competition can watch and take part in other culinary festivities: a hot dog eating contest at 5:30 p.m. and a pie eating contest at 6 p.m. Students can sign up for either contest at the Dining Hall greeter station.
