FVTC culinary student wins first place in state competition

May 31, 2011

From wisconsinrapidstribune.com: “Lincoln graduate’s culinary creation wins first place at state expo” — To say Miranda Peyketewa is a busy college student would be an understatement.

The 27-year-old alumnus of Lincoln High School in Wisconsin Rapids holds three jobs while seeking two associate degrees and two certificates in culinary arts at Fox Valley Technical College in Appleton.

And she’s hungry for more.

Peyketewa, who grew up in a family of five brothers and seven sisters, recently was rewarded for her hard work, taking first place honors in the cold plate competition during the Wisconsin Restaurant Association Expo in Milwaukee.

Entries in the category actually start out as hot dishes but are then covered with an aspic, or gelatin, and served cold. Peyketewa’s award-winning dish had multiple layers.
