The second annual University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown Diversity Working Group “Iron Chef” contest is scheduled at 7 p.m. Monday, February 19, in the UPJ Student Union Cambria Room.

The event will consist of teams of three who will be competing to design the best entrée.  Two featured “key ingredients” this year are beef strips and potatoes, while the other ingredients will be surprises.  Up to 15 teams will compete for best presentation, most creative, and UPJ Iron Chef Award.  At the first competition in 2006, nine teams demonstrated impressive culinary prowess using either chicken or potato.

This event also is being sponsored by Sodexho Campus Services, Starbucks (Richland), and the UPJ Office of Student Life.
