Savor the Flavor Competition at the State Fair

Chefs from Ivy Tech-Muncie turn local products into winning dish. 2011

The winning team included students Ryan Bell, Samantha Karas and Eric Rodgers, who prepared a nut-crusted and fruit-stuffed pork loin with roasted watermelon/fruit salsa and fried pickled watermelon rind. Ron and Susan Orebaugh from Orebaugh Farms in Muncie, Ind. provided the pork, and the watermelon came from Whitney and Autumn Horrall’s Melon Acres Inc. in Oaktown, Ind.

Come watch a new 2012 team from Ivy Tech-Muncie Culinary compete 

against several other Indiana culinary schools for a chance to take the

title two years in a row. Check the ACF-ECI calendar for information on 

when and where.
