JCR Newsletter March 2020
The JCR Competition is unique in that very few culinary competitions still use a Black Box. Mandatory items are kept secret till the day of the competition with the exception of one protein, whichis revealed one month in advance.
Many times throughout thehistory of the JCR Competition, the winner has won by fewer then 10 points.

Appetizer: Fish Rillettes with Tomato Terrine, Petit Salad, Savory Garlic Tuile, and Ginger Soy Dressing. Lovely fresh look and feel to the plate with the rillettes being highlighted as served on top of the terrine.
