Union's salad lady
wins food award
by Adella Wacker
"Culinary Excellence Award," reads the first-place trophy
Vicki Panevics won in the Nebraska Restaurant Association
Food and Equipment Show in Omaha.
Mrs. Panevics, who has worked four years in the Nebraska
Union main kitchen, won in the cold canape, or hors d'oeuvre,
division of the Oct. 23 competition. Canapes, however, aren't
her only food speciality.
Mrs. Panevics said she works well with meats and, if
circumstances had allowed, could have entered any of the
competition areas, except maybe one.
"I'm not a baker," she admitted. But her attitude is
"maybe I try U, maybe I can do it."
Mrs. Panevics, born 60 years ago in Russia, also used to
paint, she said, so she approaches cooking with the same
artist's sense of color and design.
"I can make melon baskets so gorgeous, you can't believe
it," she said.
Although she supervises the Union kitchen salad
department, Mrs. Panevics said that basically she is a cook, and
she has always been interested in cooking.
, She remembers cooking for 14 people simultaneously at
harvest time on her step-father's farm when she was just 15
Ag college in Latvia
Her precision and neatness in cooking, she said, was
developed while attending agricultural college for four and a
half years in Latvia, a small country near Russia.
Besides attending language and accounting classes, she said
students sometimes were sent to do farm work like milking
cows. And every Monday, she remembers, she cooked.
The students learned to cook everything, she said, and they
always had to finish and be precise.
This feeling is reflected in her work now. If part of a canape
should be in the center, it's in the center, she said.
Mrs. Panevics said she always arranges her canape shapes to
make a display; she is conscious of order down to the last
There was no tasting in the Omaha competition. The
judging was for appearance and practicality.
"llda a vrv particular job: the said, "and that's why it
looks to good" ' ' ( ; . ...
Just as important in a contest or at a party where canapes
are served before dinner with drinks, is a "get acquainted"
setting in the arrangement of color, Mrs. Panevics said.
Arrangement attracts judges
There may be nothing special on that plate of canapes, she
said, but it's good color arrangement that attract the judges
For example, she suggested imagining simple deviled eggs,
but colored pastel with tiny cuts around the outside, flowered
yellow yolk inside, onion and green parsley on top against a
background of paper lace on spotless silver and crystal.
Mrs. Panevics said she used lots of caviar and shrimp in the
13 different kids of canapes sU took to Omaha. She displayed
two dozen of each kind on her table.
"I t was so elegant,"" she said of that display. ,
Mrs. Panevics' husband, Harry, didn't seem to have too
much to say when his wife tried talking about her first
She said he made fun of her, asking her if she really
expected to win in Omaha. She said that she agreed to enter
the competition for the Union, but, she told him, she'd never
won anything so why should she now?
"But underneath myself," Mrs. Panovics said, "I like to
win." And she plans to enter the next competition.
