On September 27th, the CIL team, Chef Benoît (Chef instructor Cuisine), Chef Sebastien (Head Chef instructor Cuisine) and chef student Melissa, took on the 34th Caesar Salad Competition. We are proud to not only say they won the creative category but they integrated the Vegan lifestyle of eating to their creation.
“The north Houston culinary school prepared a special vegan salad that won most creative for its perfect execution of the Caesar salad flavor profile using all vegan ingredients. This included fried egg plant, a dairy-less cheese, and an egg-less Caesar dressing that could have just as easily won the traditional competition on taste alone.” -Carlos Brandon, Houston Press contributor
The food industry continues to change and grow for a healthier lifestyle and this team demonstrated the ability to adapt and keep the traditional flavors. Congratulations to our team, we are very proud of you all.
