At the inaugural Christopher Ranch Garlic Gridiron Challenge, Jo Anne Washburn, culinary student at Le Cordon Bleu (LCB) California Culinary Academy in San Francisco, won first place and a $500 scholarship with her Roasted Garlic and Blue Cheese Crab Dip (pictured, below).

The contest invited culinary students in California to create original, garlic-infused Super Bowl party dishes. The winners were announced on Feb. 7, during halftime of the Super Bowl. Annette Turek received second place and $200 with her Spicy Garlic Bacon-wrapped Mushrooms, and Shanda Cool won third and $100 with her Game Day Garlic Pigskin Peanuts. Turek and Cool are also students at LCB California Culinary Academy.
