Travis Giles, the culinary instructor at The White Mountains Community College in Berlin, is the winner of the North Country Chef’s Challenge, an effort to see who can best match culinary skills with local ingredients.
Giles was competing against seven other chefs.
The judges were from the White Mountain chapter of the American Culinary Federation.
The event is the idea of the North Country Farmer’s Co-op.
For his entrée Giles began with “a whole red deer” from a farm Milan.
