Detroit Lions X Detroit Food Academy Cooking Competition

Four talented DFA chefs squared off in our second annual Detroit Lions X Detroit Food Academy “Chopped” style cooking competition at Eastern Market. Each DFA chef teamed up with a DFA mentor and Detroit Lions player to form competing trios. Emotions ran high, intensity was palpable, and the competition was neck-in-neck as students from Voyageur, Western, and Cody High Schools filled the bleachers and cheered on their classmates. After serving up five delicious courses, Tatianna, a Sophomore from Cody High school took home grand prize and a $1,500 scholarship to Baker College / Culinary Institute of Michigan. A big thank you to Ford, Detroit Lions, Baker College, Culinary Institute of Michigan, Office of School Nutrition, and Eastern Market for making this event possible!
