SUNY Delhi's student chefs are undisputed rock stars in the culinary world.
Twice in the past two years, in 2010 and 2012, SUNY Delhi teams have won gold at the American Culinary Federation's annual national student competiton, a real-life "Top Chef" contest that pits students from across the country against each other as they whip up original four-course meals from scatch. (Some dishes from Delhi's winning 2010 menu: lobster terrine and artisan handmade mozzarella.)
This Friday, the heroics of the Delhi's chefs will come to the silver screen at the world premiere of "Mise en Place," a documentary made by Roxbury filmmaker Kent Garrett that chronicles the 2010 team's journey to the championship. The entire 2010 culinary team will be onhand at the premiere on the SUNY Delhi campus in Delhi.
An older trailer for the documentary, which you can watch below, explains the term that gives the film its name and the SUNY culinary team its mojo. Team coach Tom Recinella puts it this way:
It all comes down to being organized. "Mis en place" is critical. "Mis en place" means "everything in it place." So at its very basic definition, it's having all of your equipment and your ingredients ready to go. I have a second definition for it, though: It's mental mis en place. It means having everything in its place up here.
"Mis en Place" documentary, 6:30pm, Friday, September 21, Okun Theatre, Farrell Student and Community Center, SUNY Delhi, 2 Main Street, Delhi, NY. Reception to follow in the Farrel Loft. Free. 607-746-4520. Read the full press release from SUNY Delhi for more details.
