EDISON — The area in front of the College Center was transformed into a laboratory for the coolest course on campus as students in the Garde Manger class at Middlesex County College learned the fundamentals of ice carving.
This course is taught by Walter Leffler, the executive chef at the Old Mill Inn in Basking Ridge, and for this activity, he was assisted by Evan Hublarde, chef at the Palace in Somerset. The 14 students used chain saws to mold blocks of ice and then chisels to create the details. The class is part of the Culinary Arts degree and certificate program.
Ashley Aspres (Carteret) works on her block of ice.
John Rametta (Highland Park) and Andrew Brown (Metuchen) provide the finishing touches.
