Chefs at Immanuel retirement homes compete in cooking competitions

LINCOLN, Neb. (Nebraska) — The chefs of Immanuel, an organization with 18 retirement communities in Omaha, Lincoln and Iowa, competed and showcased their skills to a panel of judges on Friday.

The competition was held in Lincoln at the Sysco test kitchen.

Each chef was paired with another chef from a different Immanuel location.

Their job was to create a crab cake appetizer and entree of their choice.

This is the competition’s first year, and it’s something Immanuel CEO Eric Gurley would like to see every year.

“We do this to hone their skills and foster creativity because people in food science are really food artists,” Gurley said. “You have to nurture it to keep getting engagement. It’s amazing to see what they bring to the table on behalf of those we serve.”

The competition was structured like the television program ‘Chopped’ and was filmed by a professional crew to make it into a show for the residents and to create promotional videos.
