Bill Marriott’s idea for a cook-off was inspired by the region-wide cooking contest in Marriott kitchens across Europe. Teams of chefs were given a box filled with random ingredients that they used to create a three-course meal. The Forest of Arden, a Marriott Hotel & Country Club in Birmingham, England came out on top. Their meal consisted of a trio of salmon as a starter, a taster of game as the entrée, and a lemon meringue tart with raspberry mayonnaise strawberry sorbet and Chantilly cream for dessert.
