Today is Jane Elith‘s birthday, and the CEBRA–QAECO labs held their traditional celebration of this event on Monday. This is a culinary competition, where lab-mates do their best to mix crafty themes and clever names with the prettiest presentation and, of course, the most exquisite flavour. Admire the many, many entries in the above slideshow.
The Grand Prize Winner was JECC newbie Holly Kirk, who baked humble but deeply delicious olive bread sticks. Other entrants threw glitter at cake like it was mardi gras, assembled sweet miniature burgers with brownie patties, baked casseroles composed of their PhD study species, and extolled the versatility of the canned tomato.
