Student chefs will battle it out this Saturday for the title of Iron Chef PSU in the fifth annual Iron Chef Competition .

The event is free and open to public and will run from 1:30 to 4 p.m. It will be held in the Hintz Family Alumni Center, although the actual cooking will take place in the Henderson Building. A live video feed will be shown in the family center for the public to watch while the chefs compete.

The chefs will work as teams to create multiple dishes in hopes of impressing the judges. This year, a total of nine teams have entered into the competition.

Before being allowed to compete, each team had to raise at least $100 to be donated to the State College Area Food Bank .

The teams will be given one hour to create multiple dishes for the judges. The food will be judged on taste, appearance and overall creativity.

The chefs are also required to incorporate a secret ingredient into each dish that will be given to them at the start of the competition, Wendy Stein (graduate student- nutrition) said.

It will be a fun experience to watch the different chefs cook with the unique ingredient, she said.

The event is sponsored by the Nutrition Graduate Student Association, which first organized the competition in 2008.

Maureen Spill , former president of NGSA, was the brains behind the operation at the time.
