McMaster chefs sizzle at Soupfest

Last week, a group of chefs from McMasters Hospitality Services team participated in the 16th annual Soupfest at Hamilton Convention Centre by Carmens. At this year’s event, 25 organizations donated their time and soup to raise funds for Hamilton’s Living Rock Ministries.

In addition to serving up delicious soup to more than 4500 people, our very own Hospitality Services team won Best Presentation and Most Creative runner-up honours for their Steak Ramen Soup, a regular feature on the East Meets West Bistro here on campus.

Proudly representing McMaster were Chefs Andy Leung, Nathan Alston, Lincoln Crowe, Ana Carballo, Paul Hoag, John Barreda and Front of the house staff Dixon Midigo, Melanie Cottrell, Kirsten Mak, and Scott Dejong.

This is the first year the McMaster Hospitality Services team has participated in the event. Not only were they the participants from a University campus, they were one of only five to come back with some hardware.
