Fourteen Academy of Culinary Arts students showed their passion for food and competed in the 14th annual Iron Student Chef Competition at the ACA located at Atlantic Cape Community College’s Mays Landing Campus, April 23.

At 9:30 a.m. sharp, it was time to start the competition coordinated by ACA Chef Educator Vincent Tedeschi of Northfield. The students were organized into three teams. Their mission: to create four dishes, each incorporating a tightly guarded secret ingredient revealed only minutes before the start of cooking. The teams were given 15 minutes to create recipes and 90 minutes to cook.

The secret ingredient to be included in each team’s four dishes, from appetizers to entrée was the potato, with the catch being they had to use five different types including Yukon, Red Bliss, Peruvian Blue, Sweet and Russet. The teams were given the potatoes and a variety of other ingredients and told to produce three plates for each dish, one for display, and the others for judging. Continue reading

The official name is the Autonomous Region of the Azores and it’s part of Portugal. You’ll also see the Portuguese name written – Açores.

Greetings from the Worthington Atlantic City Campus–April 13, 2018

The Women’s Center located in Linwood brought Sexual Assault Awareness to the Charles D. Worthington Atlantic City Campus on Tuesday, April 10.

They provided an activity for students and staff, “The Denim Day Project,” where students decorated jeans to tell the stories of survivors. Its origin came from a case in Italy when a woman was forced to remove her jeans by her rapist and because she removed her own jeans, the courts determined consent and set her rapist free. Protestors assembled on the steps of the court and wore jeans in objection to that decision and in support of the survivor. The Clothesline Display Project is an activity where victims of sexual assault tell their story on jeans or represent memories of those who passed away from sexual assault. Thanks to Monique Corbitt and JuWana McNear, Sexual Assault staff at the Women’s Center, for bringing their team to the Worthington Atlantic City Campus.
