On April 25 DelVal's dining services provider, Parkhurst, held its second timed cooking competition in the campus dining hall. The competition was inspired by the T.V. Show, "Chopped," and four pairs of students were given 30 minutes to prepare a dish for a panel of judges using three surprise ingredients.
