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 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, executive chef at Baltusrol Country Club in Springfield. The 19 students used chainsaws to mold blocks of ice and then chisels to create the details. The class is part of the Culinary Arts degree and certificate program.
