Message from Chef Wahrer
I wanted to take a moment to share the news from the 2016 New Jersey Association of Counties Culinary Competition held on May 20, 2016 at Caesar’s Palace in Atlantic City . This statewide competition is the capstone event of the NJAC conference and places 12 vocational programs in a free-for-all where table display, food preparation, and showmanship collide in a melee of hors d’oeuvres. Some of the best culinary programs in the state were present this year and our students, in our first time at the event, not only held our own but placed in several categories!
Please congratulate the following students as we placed 2nd in the Chef’s choice: Plate Presentation and 2nd in the NJAC Judges’ award: Station Display:
