Rice Chef’s take top honors at the Southwest Food Expo

Congratulations to four Rice University chefs who did just an outstanding job in competition. The categories they competed in were:

W- Akaushi bone in Beef Short Ribs & P-1 Hot/Warm Dessert

Chef Roger Elkhouri (CEC, ACE) took second place and a silver ACF medal while Chef Edward Castillo (CCC) took third place and a silver ACF medal; both in the (W) category. Even though we did not achieve the top spot [this time], taking two out of three of the top spots is huge! Great job…

Pastry Chef Maricela Lucciola (CWPC) and Pastry Chef Selena Rivera (CWPC) each earned a bronze medal in the (P-1) dessert category. Great job for their first competition in this challenging category…

I am often asked what makes Rice University Dining Services great and the answer is as simple as counting the medals around the necks of our 10 ACF certified chefs.
