A trio of chefs at Herman & Luther’s – all of them graduates of Penn College’s culinary arts and systems major – competed in a “Chopped”-style event at the rustic venue along Route 87 near Montoursville on Saturday. George E. Logue III, a 2010 alumnus, emerged victorious against challengers Patrick J. Kelly II (2015) and Christopher S. Kasler (2016), with a portion of the proceeds earmarked for suicide prevention. Judges for the sold-out event were Chef Michael J. Ditchfield, instructor of hospitality management/culinary arts, and former adjunct faculty members and restaurateurs Alfredo F. Daniele and Kevin G. Nash.
