Nations' Cup International Student Culinary Competition

Students and faculty at the Nations Cup International Culinary Competition

The Nations' Cup was created in 2005 in the spirit of supporting professional and cultural learning for tomorrow's chefs. This is a biennial event structured like the “Iron Chef” TV show, where competitors are presented with mystery ingredients and given a limited amount of time to turn them into five-star gourmet fare. 

October 17-19, 2019, Grand Rapids Community College’s Secchia Institute for Culinary Education will host the Nation's Cup Competition. Teams include:

  • Barbados
