Ish Smith and Darrun Hilliard grabbed their cooking utensils and joined students from Generation With Promise in whipping up some healthy dishes Tuesday in a competition sponsored by the Detroit Pistons and Henry Ford Health System.

The Pistons nutritionist Stacy Goldberg provided players healthy dishes to prepare and the guards enlisted five students each for the respective teams to help.

Smith swayed the judges with his "fried" chicken and healthy mac and cheese. Former Piston and team community ambassador Earl Cureton cast the deciding vote.
