The best cook at UEM,2010?------Las 2 Conchitas!

Wendy . Blog Published 29 November 2010

Our THANKSGIVING PIE TASTING FEAST is a multi-faceted event.

It's for charity: Many people donated homemade desserts and drinks, and many more paid a euro and tasted them. This year we're supporting the NGO: Amigos de los Mayores so all the money will go to them.

It's for fun: The whole university was invited to partake and many people from many departments came down to try the desserts.

It's educational: We gave everyone a paper about Thanksgiving and encouraged everyone to practice their English while they were choosing their desserts.

It's a contest: Who's the best cook at UEM? This year 252.70 Euros were collected, and 104 votes were tallied. And the winner is.........Excuse me, the WINNERS ARE:

1st Place:Conchita JARA MAROTO from UEM LAB and her daughter Conchita BLANCO JARA from Instituto Arquitecto Ventura Rodriguez in Boadilla del Monte with their MOTHER-DAUGHTER cake.

2nd Place: Raul DELGADO from TIC-Departamento de Tecnología, Información y Comunicación with his QUESADA PASIEGA.

3rd Place: Antonio GAROFALO, a medical student from Italy, with his Pingú Cake.
