Lafayette’s Breakfast of Champions – An Event of BREAKFAST proportions!

Fall-Star Bougie Breakfast

The Breakfast of Champions 2021

This December, the Lafayette Delivery Center (LDC) held its first annual Breakfast of Champions tournament. The contest aimed to give our colleagues an opportunity to take a breather after the Thanksgiving holidays, and a chance to show off their favorite breakfast creations.

Participants competed for the title and distinctive honor of being named LDC’s World Champion of Breakfast. Along with the reigning world title, the contestants were competing for a custom-designed ‘PERFIES’ cereal box cover carrying their own likeness. As a virtual event, contenders presented and promoted their breakfast dishes to all those in attendance via Teams video conferencing.

Once all of the dishes had been presented, the judges deliberated and announced the two finalists moving into a final showdown. In this final round, all attendees were given the opportunity to vote for their favorite breakfast presentation. The champion and runner-up were then announced and congratulations were shared.

Our champion, Derrin Tullier (Senior Technical Consultant), the now reigning World Champion of Breakfast, wowed the judges’ panel with his culinary masterpiece which he titled, “Fall-Star Bougie Breakfast.”

Derrin assured us that it tasted as great as it looks. That was eggs-actly what we expected, of course!

Runner up Sara Roberts (Business Consultant) down-played this breakfast baked potato creation as a last-ditch effort, in her own words, “I needed to go grocery shopping and it was the only meal I had ingredients for.

The judges’ panel was captivated by the use of dazzling color composition and expert execution. This landed the dish directly in the finals.

Congratulations to Derrin Tullier and Sara Roberts for being named the finalists in this competition, and congratulations to Derrin Tullier, the World Champion of Breakfast!
