TV-style Competition: a family favorite

At the end of each session of culinary arts summer class we have a TV-style cooking competition on the last day, Friday afternoon.  If you watch the shows, you know what we mean!  Who will chop their way to victory this summer?

The competition in our culinary arts summer class is all in good fun, and students are placed in teams and tasked to make any appetizer, main course and dessert from the curriculum across the two weeks. Judges can include local chefs, foodies, food bloggers, and more.  Students work in teams and choose the recipes they want to present to the judges.

Parents/families are invited to attend and will get to sample all the recipes!  We will send out info on this in your welcome pack don’t worry.  It is the last Friday of each session, at the kitchen, arrive around 4:00PM.
