The Tampa Bay Buccaneers held their 2nd annual rookie training camp cook-off at The Art Institute of Tampa, a branch campus of Miami International University of Art & Design. The rookies hit the kitchen on Friday, June 3, to learn how to prepare some appetizing dishes and earn bragging rights.

Culinary students, faculty and staff hosted the rookie cooking competition. Chef Clyde Tanner and Chef Mariela Genco also presented cooking tips at the Bucs training facility. Twenty-four players and several other Bucs administrative staff members participated in the cook-off. The players were divided into six teams, led by student “chef coaches,” but only one team walked away with the win.
