The ultimate competition, eleven chefs pair up with student groups

kick-off event for the Summit will prove to be entertaining and
delicious, all for a good cause! Different students groups, from the
girl?s club soccer team to the GreenHouse RLC, will work with their
chefs to create an appetizer, salad, or dessert that will be judged on
categories such as use of local ingredients, originality, taste, and
so on. The winner receives a trophy to bring back to their dining hall
and the title of ?UVM Top Chef?! The audience will count for half of
the votes, so come and support your favorite campus chefs and students
groups by eating the best that they have to offer! Admission to the

Campus Kitchens. Each chef is making enough food to feed 250-300
people, so expect to be pretty full at this event!/
Last of all, showing of FAST FOOD NATION!
/Tonight at 8pm in CC Theater/
Inspired by the incendiary bestseller that exposed the hidden facts
behind America's fast food industry comes a powerful drama that takes
an eye-opening journey into the dark heart of the All-American meal.
Richard Linklater's FAST FOOD NATION traces the birth of an everyday,
ordinary burger through a chain of riveting, interlocked human stories
- from a hopeful, young immigrant couple who cross the border to work
in a perilous meat-packing plant, to a teen clerk who dreams of life
beyond the counter; to the corporate marketing whiz who is shocked to
discover that his latest burger invention - "The Big One" - is
literally full of manure. As the film traverses from pristine barbeque
smoke labs to the volatile U.S.-Mexican border, it unveils a
provocative portrait of all the yearning, ambition, corruption and
hope that lies inside what America is biting into.
