Birmingham Halls Cook Off

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

We all know the rivalry that simmers between the halls at Birmingham, but what happened when we put a group of Hall Reps in the kitchens of staff house and tossed in a culinary grenade?

Well…a lot of cooking really! We saw our teams create 8 fabulous meals that showed off their skills (and lack of them) to a panel of esteemed judges. Some of the dishes were fantastic, especially Mason’s tuna steak, and FOCSOC’s Carbonara – others were down right weird (Maid on the Vale – delicious but weird). I have got to say the quality was very high, and Jon (from FOCSOC) made the day very entertaining with his encyclopedic knowledge of expletives!

The judges were all very impressed, especially Kevin Herbert of the University catering management team. A big well done to all the teams, fantastic food and a fantastic film!
