PepsiCo Game Day Grub Match
Who Will Make the Cut?
CIA students have the opportunity to compete in a lot of cooking competitions—but this contest is something special. PepsiCo is offering students a chance not just for scholarships, but a trip to the Super Bowl. “I love football and I love food. This is the best of both,” says semi-finalist Ryan Hartwell.
Four student teams will compete to create the perfect tailgate food. They’ll have a variety of ingredients to choose from, including brands such as Frito-Lay, Gatorade, Pepsi-Cola, Quaker, and Tropicana. Each team must incorporate at least three PepsiCo products in their entry.
Who will decide which culinary hopefuls advance to Arizona and the finals? They’ll need to impress New York Jets player Nick Mangold as well as CIA graduates Anne Burrell ’96 and David Burke ’82.
