Williston hosted its own version of the television contest “Chopped.”

“Chopped” is a reality TV competition in which the contestants compete against each other in a cooking challenge before other chefs. The lead chefs will select specific ingredients, sometimes ridiculous, and the chefs must use all of the ingredients given to make a three-course meal.

Our competition consisted of a cooking showdown between duos from every grade. They met on Sunday, April 9th in the Birch Dining Commons. Each duo was given ingredients and had to cook whatever they could with them. The dishes then were put up against one another to see whose was the best.

The ingredients were all ready to use, with no cooking involved. Also, unlike the show, the pairs of students had no pantry, but the ingredients were still able to be fashioned into three distinct courses.

Sophomore Ellie Wolfe is one of the founders of the Williston Gameshow Club. She and the other founder got the idea from watching television one day when “Chopped” came on.

“We knew that we wanted to do something easier because we thought that it would be fun to do the amazing race in pairs and have it go around campus,” said Ellie.

On whether or not there will be another contest, Ellie said, “It depends on the next meeting. Maybe we’ll do the ‘Amazing Race’ or ‘Project Runway.’ It also depends on time and who’s interested.”

The Gameshow Club planned the Chopped Challenge with their faculty advisor, Ms. Malinowski. The winners of the first Annual Chopped Challenge were Tyler Greenwood and Nick Hill.
