Area MCC student earns silver at ACF Salon Competition

SWARTZ CREEK – Cedric Dagon of Swartz Creek was one of three Mott Community College Culinary Arts students to win awards at the 3rd Annual American Culinary Federation (ACF) Culinary Salon Competition on April 27 at the Culinary Institute of Michigan (CIM-Baker College) in Port Huron.

Dagon earned a silver medal in the Rock Cornish Game Hen, Chicken or Duck, Practical and Contemporary Hot-Food Cooking category.

All three students had to fabricate and prepare two portions of a finished dish. They had 15 minutes for set-up, 60 minutes to fabricate and cook, 10 additional minutes for plating and 15 minutes for clean-up.

Dagon prepared a seared duck breast with marble potatoes and tri-color carrots with quinoa.

“Our students did very well at the Salon Competition,” said Chef Mark Handy, Culinary Arts instructor. “This type of competition gives them a chance to put their education to the test and showcase their hard work.”

The goal of ACF Approved Culinary Competitions is to continually raise the standards of culinary excellence and professionalism, nurture the creativity of individual chefs, provide a showcase for individual skills, techniques and styles, and give students an opportunity to earn ACF certification points toward professional accreditation. – L.R.
