CIC Chefs and Students Participate in Chefs Collaborative Summit 13

CIC chefs and students dove into the Chefs Collaborative Sustainable Food Summit 13, which took place in Charleston this week. In addition to attending the Summit, they were involved in two of the major events. CIC Chef Instructor Kevin Mitchell  and CIC Adjunct Chef Instructor Simon Andrews (Executive Chef of the Francis Marion Hotel) joined Chef Charlotte Jenkins of Gullah Cuisine restaurant to produce a Gulllah luncheon for the attendees. The vegetables below came from just one of six food stations, another of which included an array of perloos. Chef Mitchell speaks about it here:

In the spirit of Chefs Collaborative, CIC Culinary Department Chair Michael Carmel and CIC Chef Instructor Scott Stefanelli cooked cassoulet made from local Keegan-Filion chickens and pork to serve at the Monday evening reception. Held at the South Carolina Aquarium, other Charleston chefs providing dishes include Chefs Sean Brock, Mike Lata, Craig Deihl, and Frank Lee.
