County Prep’s Culinary Arts Department competed last week at FCCLA’S Culinary Arts Event, held at Middlesex County College. Chef John Palsi’s students Antonios Azmy, Zevastian Vega, and Nisha Purino competed against other vocational high schools from New Jersey.
Culinary Arts, a team event, recognizes participants enrolled in occupational culinary arts/food service training programs for their ability to work as members of a team to produce a quality meal using industrial culinary arts/food service techniques and equipment. Teams of participants must develop a plan for the time allotted, prepare menu items given to them at the time of the event, and present their prepared items to evaluators. Students are judged on knife skills,team organization,food production taste and presentation .
The winning team will be announced at the FCCLA spring conference on March 28,2019 in Cherry Hill NJ.
Best of luck to Chef Palsi and his students!
