… and the winner is…

By | July 23rd, 2014|

Hello all... Our Fruit Tray competition has come to a conclusion here at Camp between the Ockanickon Kitchen Staff and the Matollionequay Kitchen Staff and the winner is... The Ockanickon Kitchen Staff's "Indian Chief" display!!!   The senior Kitchen Staff and I narrowed down the 5 daily trays last week to one finalist from each kitchen and let YOU pick the winner by "Liking" the photos on our Facebook page. I let the voting run from the initial posting on Saturday until midnight Tuesday and by a slim 136 to 117 count the stately Indian Chief won over the beautiful [...]

A little friendly competition in the Kitchen…

By | July 16th, 2014|

Hello all!! What started as some of our Kitchen Staff being a little creative and having fun with designs on our morning fruit tray for the campers, has now turned into a little friendly competition between the Ocky Kitchen Staff and the Matolly Kitchen Staff. Pictured below is an example of what I'm talking about... That is a fish made out of honeydew and cantaloupe melons with a dried cranberry for an eye. (This tray was from about a week ago and not in the contest.) So here are the rules and the way the contest will be judged... #1... [...]

Cheese Moose? No, Chocolate Mousse!

Hey folks... When I took the reigns of our Camp's Food Service program in 2006, after the departure of my mentor Chef Manny, I began a mission to find a special dessert to serve for our most special dinner at Camp... The Green and Blue Feather Banquet night. After a few tries with some average and vaguely memorable ice cream type treats, I found the answer... Chocolate Mousse! Chocolate Mousse garnished with a strawberry, a vanilla cookie and a dollop of whipped cream!! A delightfully rich and winning combination! The Matolly Girls even came up with a chant to let [...]

Did you know?

Hello dear readers… As stated in the title of this post, I’ll pose this question… Can you guess how many meals per day my wonderful Kitchen Staff and I serve? Did I hear someone say 100? Did I hear someone else shout 472 meals per day?? Of course I didn’t hear anyone shout anything… this is a blog. […]

Mmmmmmmm… BBQ!

By | July 11th, 2010|

Hello Friends... Tonight was Barbecue Night!!! The Girls from Matolly traveled down to the Ocky Amphitheater in front of the Dining Hall to join the Boys for our mouth watering, traditional BBQ. The menu included hamburgers with all the fixins', hot dogs, BBQ chicken, and Chef Jason's Famous Sweet and (slightly) Spicy Ribs. Along side the entrees we served up a big batch of potato salad, a tossed garden salad, chips and all the "bug juice" and water you could drink! For dessert... Popsicles!! The tasty fare was coupled with lots and lots of sing-a-longs and a few repeat-after-me songs. [...]
