Strawberry Mansion senior culinary scholar Domonekia Hays participated in the Second Annual Great Philly Cook Off on October 10th.
In this “Chopped” inspired cooking competition, Philly chefs partner with School District of Philadelphia culinary students to create an appetizer. Domonekia was partnered with Hell’s Kitchen Finalist, Chef Barbie Marshall, a private chef and restaurant consultant servicing the Philadelphia area.
The dish they created was a seared rockfish with sweet potato puree and seasonal vegetables in a plum syrup with butter. Together, they placed third in the overall competition. The competition raises funds for the PRLA Educational Foundation Scholarship Fund.
