Yummo & Grand Prize

Team Name: Tiny Tipsy Tea Party

If you "Fancy a cuppa?" [said in your best British accent], then the Tiny Tipsy Tea Party at the Small Foods Party was your best option. The bakers and tea masters served up a little tea party with bite-sized sandwiches (cucumber & spinach cream cheese on pita and Brie & raspberry jam on pumpernickel), scones, desserts (eclair, fruit tart, meringue, and chocolate petit-four), and, of course, tea! Each bountiful serving was presented on an individual double-decker serving platter

Participants: Dana Brenner (head chef), Karthik Chidambaranathan, Emily Dolbin, Robert Holder, Ruby Holder, Grace Kim, Andrew Kim, Joanna Meade, Mark Malloy, Shruti Rane, Robyn Vance, and Megan Welling.

A real conveyor belt with the smallest hand-made sushi, offered along with dram of sake or green tea. Six different kinds of sushi were served atop colorful plates made from rice crackers: anchovy, smoked salmon, pickled plum roll, vegetable roll, corn-mayo, and egg-yakitamago. Each serving came with pickled ginger and wasabi, a mini-cup of miso soup, & teeny triangles of sweet bean mochi.


Blue Plate Special

Team Name: Balteenymore Medical Center (Pharma to Table)

Participants: Nancy Schoenfeld, Mike Barr, Esther Barr, Kurt Barr, Craig Schoenfeld, Paul Worley, Elise Worley

The hospital food you've been dreaming of: for starters, a liquid diet consisting of shots of cranberry juice and broth, progressing to pudding with a graham cracker and jello, and finally a regular diet of Salisbury steak, mashed potatoes, green beans and a roll with butter. The hospital was staffed by Dr. Kutemup, head of surgery, Nurse Prudence Enema, head of nursing, and Ms. Utterly Hartliss, CEO. The patient was Zero Muffett, who was admitted for an itsy-bitsy spider bite.
