SU Sous Chef Matt Conley Receives Silver Medal in the American Culinary Federation Competition
SALISBURY, MD---Matt Conley, sous chef in Salisbury University’s Dining Services, has again medaled in the American Culinary Federation competition, bringing home a silver award.
The event was held during the 22nd annual Tastes of the World Chef Culinary Conference in Amherst, MA.
Working with colleagues from Penn State and Vanderbilt universities, he created a soup/salad, entrée and dessert for four, as well as a buffet-style meal for 12. The team was judged on teamwork, presentation, nutritional balance, creativity, flavor, texture and service.
Teams used a “mystery basket” of items to create their recipes. They had only one hour to choose their dishes and determine if ingredients were available in a storeroom.
The competition was the culminating event for the conference. Conley’s team was one of 16 in this year’s event. This marked his eighth medal in 10 years at the competition.
