A week before “The Game” the Wolverines scraped knives against the Buckeyes in a different kind of matchup. Each university brought its top chefs to engage in a culinary battle Nov. 19 at The Culinary Vegetable Institute (CVI) in Milan, Ohio, for a special Earth to Table Dinner.
All courses used ingredients representative of their region and traditions. The sold-out event featured friends of CVI, as well as fans of each school. Following a vote taken after the dinner, the U-M chefs were pronounced the victors.
