November 3rd, 2009 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H.-
The sweetest competition in the Granite State is again underway! The Common Man Apprentice Project Dessert Competition kicked off Nov. 3 with judging of student created desserts at the Plymouth Common Man restaurant.

Dessert Competition
Common Man judges sample PSU’s Team Deluxe treat, “Stopping by the Woods”, a Robert Frost-themed dessert. Team members include Steve Beaumont,Kelley Dubois,Lindsay Jarvis and Emily Cote.

The popular competition pits business students from St. Anselm College and Plymouth State University in creating a dessert for the Common Man Restaurant group.

The competition is modeled after the reality TV show, ‘The Apprentice,’ featuring Donald Trump. Head chefs from the restaurant chain select the three best desserts from contests at each school. Those six winning entries are then put on the menu in November at each of the five Common Man restaurants in a head-to-head competition, with the winner decided by total sales. The overall winner is expected to be named in December.
