(Inland Empire, July 2015)  Matfer Bourgeat, one of the world’s leading producers of premium quality culinary products, recently “cooked” up a fun contest with some great prizes to celebrate its 200th anniversary.  To honor the company’s bicentennial birthday, chefs around the country were asked why they trusted Matfer products and how they used them. Chef Liz Thompson, culinary instructor at The Art Institute of California - Inland Empire, a campus of Argosy University was selected as the Grand Prize Winner. 

As the winner, Chef Thompson received 200 Matfer Bourgeat items worth $5,750, which she personally donated the suitable items to the MEND food bank where she volunteers.  MEND cooks for and feeds over 30,000 people a month. Click for more information on MEND.
