Diamond Chef has new champ
4/17/2017

Chef Mary Beth Ringgold was named the first female chef champion in the history of Diamond Chef Arkansas. On April 13, Ringgold went head-to-head in the final round against Donnie Ferneau and Jimmy Carter after they "fished" out their secret ingredients from the watery tanks that held a school of large-mouth bass.

The final two scores were only tenths of a point apart between Chefs Ferneau and Ringgold. However, Ringgold reigned supreme over the field of other talented chefs that competed.

More than 600 people attended the fast-paced culinary competition and were treated to fantastic culinary experiences and signature chef cocktails at the UA-PTC Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management Institute. The event raised more than $110,000 that will be used through the UA-PTC Foundation to support the students and programs of the college.
