ECC culinary students win scholarships at spicy Colonial Café competition

Kirsten Schreiber

Kirsten Schreiber won first place with her Sriracha Breakfast Nachos.

Elgin Community College hosted the second annual Colonial Café & Ice Cream culinary competition finals on Nov. 17 and awarded scholarships to four ECC students. The competition took place in ECC's Spartan Terrace Restaurant, located on the Main Campus at 1700 Spartan Drive, Elgin.

Ten semi-finalists battled face-to-face as a professional panel of judges decided which student best incorporated Sriracha hot sauce into their dishes.

Kirsten Schreiber, of West Chicago, won first place with her Sriracha Breakfast Nachos and will receive a $900 scholarship. Jonathan Snell, of Elgin, won second place with his Chocolate Sriracha Fortune Sauce and will be receiving a $700 scholarship.

Brit Steffensen, of Elgin, came in third place with her Cajun Shrimp and Grits with Sriracha Butter Sauce and will be receiving a $500 scholarship. Camilla Ramos, of Elgin, was the fourth-place winner, with her Maple Sriracha Pork Sausage with Honey Cornmeal Pancakes, and will be receiving a $400 scholarship.

Amanda Adams won the People's Choice Award with her Honey Sriracha Chicken Poutine.
