Cal Dining's  Mary Ferrer (left) and Ida Shen (right) will be representing UC Berkeley at the first annual Garlic Bowl this July at the Gilroy Garlic Festival. The duo will have one hour to prepare, plate and serve two dishes that incorporate garlic to a panel of judges. Ida and Mary will be going up against chefs from San Jose State and Fresno State. The stakes? Bragging rights and $5,000 scholarship awarded to the winning university.
