Does talent on the football field translate to talent in the kitchen? That’s what the rookie players of the Cleveland Browns recently found out as they partnered with Baldwin Wallace University for a crash course in the kitchen, aptly named “Rooks to Cooks.”
As reported by News5, the rookies, including drafted and undrafted players, visited the university's Center for Innovation and Growth to learn about nutrition, knife skills, and cooking techniques.
The goal of the day was camaraderie and learning life skills, as the players transition from college to the NFL, but there was of course some healthy competition with awards given out for timing, cleanliness, and presentation.
The players agreed that the day was a success with rookie quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson joking that he “may even walk into the cafeteria tomorrow and try to teach the chefs a little something.”
