- UGA Chef Don Law wins a bronze medal at the Southern Regional Culinary Challenge
- The main ingredient was lobster
- He is back to work at Snelling Dining Hall and hopes to compete again next year
Chef Don Law had his hands around a lobster’s neck at the Southern Regional Culinary Challenge. And he finished with a medal around his own neck. Law says,
“I tied for third place and got a bronze medal, which I’m very happy for.”
Chef Don Law competed in front of a crowd of about 150 people… more than is usually back in the kitchen at Snelling.
The dining hall chef traveled to Oklahoma to compete. He had only one hour to put his dish together in front of cameras and a crowd.
“I was a little nervous,” Law says.
Law says he practiced his dish twice and focused on time saving techniques.
“You only have a six foot work table to work on, so you want to keep the table nice and clean and neat and organized. And you’re flying around in the hour trying to get everything done, so it makes it a little difficult.
It may not be as difficult to whip up a cheeseburger as it is a lobster dish, but you can be sure the chef behind your meal at the dining hall is an award winning one.
