What's Cookin'? Federal employees show off their culinary skills

ARCHIVES

So it wasn't exactly an episode of Iron Chef. But it was a lot more fun. The Office of Personnel Management on Wednesday hosted its first "Feds Get Fit Cook-off," as part of the agency's governmentwide initiative to promote healthy living among the federal workforce. Melissa Knoll of the Social Security Administration walked away with the top prize, wowing judges with her tomato curry coconut soup with shrimp. Judges included "Top Chef" finalist and caterer Carla Hall and former New England Patriot football player Darryl Haley who had the very tough job of choosing finalists from among the 500 submissions.
