Tis the time to eat good—whether the cuisine is classic/tradition or around the world for the holiday festivities, the basic food for the holidays is to look and taste good which could be the emphasis on culinary students’ competitions around the holidays. Congratulations to Chef Jesse Strell and his team of culinary arts students from St. Lucie West Centennial High School for earning the Chefs of Tomorrow trophy by virtue of getting the most votes from the public for the best of show entry in the inaugural St. Lucie Public Schools Culinary Arts Showcase held recently at the Port St. Lucie Civic Center.
Teams from five of the St. Lucie County District Schools (high schools)
plus Northport and St. Lucie West K8 schools competed in the event, which drew nearly 300 community members to sample the culinary creations.
The winning team earned the trophy, a culinary arts specialty book for each member, and a $100 gift card from event sponsor Sam’s Club for their school’s program. Other event sponsors included Johnson & Wales University, Culinary Institute of America, Wal-Mart, Target, Robert Erneston Produce, and Nelson Family Farms.
