Student Achievement


The Soyfoods Council, in cooperation with ISU Dining and the food science and human nutrition department, created a challenge for students to creatively cook with soy. In the "Soy You Think You Can Cook" competition, the judges were looking for unique applications of soy products within the dishes prepared. First place went to the Soy Sistas team, consisting of Amanda Pudlik, Elise Fiscus and Cassie Miller, all seniors in culinary science. Their recipes were a sweet and savory Monte Cristo sandwich that included soy cheese, soy cream chese and vanilla soy milk, and creamy winter squash and apple soup that included soy milk and soft tofu.
