Either Detroit Pistons' rookies Stanley Johnson and Darrun Hilliard have hidden culinary skills we haven't heard about or the students at The Culinary Institute of Michigan will have their work cut out for themselves showing these guys around the kitchen on Thursday.

Per the Pistons' press release:

WHO: Stanley Johnson; Darrun Hilliard; Palace Executive Chef Lamar Nolden; Thomas Recinella, CEC®, ACE, AAC®, HGT, Program Director and COURSES Restaurant Executive Chef at CIM Port Huron; and 15 students from Oakland Technical Center Northwest

WHAT: Detroit Pistons rookies Stanley Johnson and Darrun Hilliard will lead two teams of high school students in a cooking competition judged by Palace Executive Chef Lamar Nolden at The Culinary Institute of Michigan (CIM), a division of Baker College of Port Huron, as a part of Pistons FIT week presented by Henry Ford Health Systems.

Chef Nolden will begin the day with a cooking demonstration with the help of two CIM students. Following the demo, the students and players will be split into two teams and each will receive a recipe for a dish to cook. The teams will work together with help from their Pistons' player captains to prepare the dish. Chef Nolden will sample and judge each dish to determine who will be the winner of the competition.

WHEN: Thursday, January 28, 1:30 p.m.-4:30 p.m.
*Media Availability from 3 p.m.-4 p.m.
