CCS students bringing 'The Heat' to Iron Chef


“The hope is that we can actually get their dishes on some of the school menus,” Hohensee said.

Judging the competition will be Joseph Yelich, superintendent of the Oneonta City School District; Sean Taylor, part of SUNY Delhi’s Culinary Arts Department; and Sonia Janiszewski, president of Farm Catskill, which is organizing the local produce donations that will be used on Saturday.

Local ingredients that will be used in the competition include whole wheat grain from Lucky Dog Farm in Hamden, maple syrup from Roxbury Mountain Maple and eggs from Rich Farm in South Kortright, she said. The competition will be a great way to highlight the great resources, she said, that are available locally.

“This is the first time we’ve done something like this,” Janiszewski said. “I’m excited to try what they come up with.”

Hohensee said middle and high schools in Edmeston, Cooperstown, Delhi, Sidney, Stamford and Amsterdam are just a handful that will be represented. 

Until the big day, the teams, which have some “interesting” names, Hohensee said, are busy perfecting their recipes.

“Cooperstown’s team is called ‘The Heat’ and are making ‘Smokin’ Enchiladas with Mole,’ Edmeston’s team, ‘The Cooking “Pan”thers’ will be making ‘Veggie Pockets’ and Delaware Academy’s team, ‘The Flaming Knives’ will be preparing ‘Vegetable Lasagna in Parmesan Cream Sauce,’” Hohensee said. “They got very creative.”
