Battle of the Chefs

DCIM100GOPROEvery night this week, from June 2nd – June 6th, we have had a team of chefs battle it out for the glory of being named Best Chef. 11 total associates all working in dining services at The Fountains at Lake Pointe Woods have been broken up into teams of two (with one team of three) and have taken on the challenge of serving their favorite 4 course meal (soup, salad, entrée and dessert). The residents cast their vote on presentation, taste and creativity. Once the tallies have been totaled up, the team with the most points at the end of the week win! Who do you think will win the bragging rights of being called Best Chef?
