Suffolk County Community College Culinary students are regional champions for the third consecutive year and tops in the Culinary Knowledge Bowl after bettering five other college teams at the American Culinary Federation’s (ACF) Regional Conference in Atlanta this week.

“Our team’s excellent academic preparation, culinary talents, hard work and coaching leadership were a winning combination and I am proud of our team and their accomplishment,” said Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay.

The team will now represent Suffolk County Community College at the National Tournament in Phoenix, Arizona this summer.

The Baron H. Galand Culinary Knowledge Bowl, created in 1992 and sponsored by American Technical Publishers, is a “Jeopardy”-style culinary competition named in honor of past ACF national president Baron H. Galand, CEC® , AAC® , HOF. Galand was a champion for junior members and encouraged them to get involved in their profession outside the kitchen. ACF knowledge bowls are open to junior culinary teams from ACF chapters, apprenticeship programs and accredited schools. Competition questions are drawn from five nationally published textbooks for culinary professionals that cover topics such as nutrition, safety and sanitation, and the art of modern cooking.
