On November 28, we had our last general meeting for the year. The meeting was hosted by Chef Norman Hart, CEC, CCE, AAC at Pittsburgh Technical College. He, the faculty, and their students did a great job. We were treated to a nice charcuterie display as well as dessert and cookies, all prepared by the students at PTC.

It was attended by 20-25 people. At the meeting, we had 5 students enter the “Anything Goes” Autumn Entrée Soups competition. The entrants were:
• First place: Trisha Butler, a student at Bidwell Training Center, who prepared a Rustic Pear & Potato Soup.
• Second place: Nicole Grback, a student at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, entered her Chicken and Butternut Squash Soup with Barley.
• Third place: Mark Zengler, a student at Bidwell Training Center, who served his Sausage and Cheddar Oktoberfest Soup.
• Lynn Gales, a student at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, who prepared Velvet Roasted Pumpkin Soup.
• Robert Powell, a student at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, who prepared a Puree of Peanut soup.

The competition was judged by Chefs Johan Meinke, Scott Burkhart, and Derek Perrone. Thank you to all of the entrants, Pittsburgh Technical College, Chef Hart, and the judges for making this event a success.
