Sam here. My Yale Club creates interesting culinary events, and this one, called International Food Fight, involved four teams of alums cooking four different meant to be judged by famous French chefs. The chefs were Jacques Pepin, Alain Sailhac, and Andre Soltner.
The cook off benefitted two food-oriented charities supported by the Yale Club. Our chef with Green Mansions Catering, chef Noga Andriani, taught French cooking at the Culinary Institute with Jacques Pepin years ago. Three of the meals consisted of lamb with oriental sauces and sides, and one was a tofu entree. Some of the sauces, rubs, glazes, and slaws were of particular interest to me.
See some of the photos below, and watch out for any new additions on our menu based on the entrees we saw at the Food Fight!
