College of the Ozark Keeter Center Kitchen Supervisor and adjunct culinary arts instructor Christopher Freeman received the “People’s Choice” award March 11, at the Springfield/Branson Taste of Elegance competition and dinner.

Sponsored by the National Pork Board, the Taste of Elegance inspires different ways to feature pork on the menu.

As one of the major cooking events for professional chefs in the industry since 1987, The Taste of Elegance competition has evolved into more than 20 annual regional competitions, including the Springfield/Branson event.

Ten area chefs competed in this year’s competition which offered pork entrĂ©es to 300 invited guests, who then voted on their favorites.

Senior culinary arts majors Chani Bailey and Austin Merath helped Chef Freeman prepare his winning meal.
