Slideshow: Chefs create ice sculptures at Crown Center

On Saturday, a dozen or so professional chefs and culinary students worked with hammers, picks, saws and electric hairdryers to create elaborate ice sculptures in the courtyard in front of the Crown Center Ice Terrace. The guest judges included Danny O’Neill, founder of the Roasterie.

Frederico Hernandez, sous chef at the Hyatt Regency Crown Center Hotel, won for his sculpture of a harp and swan bedecked with candles. That night, the sculpture was featured in the foyer of the Hyatt Regency’s ballroom for the 2010 Greater Kansas City Chefs Association Inaugural Ball.
