The Academy of Hospitality and Tourism High School at Erasmus 1st Cook Off!
Students with one semester of culinary training within AOHT represented their ‘house’ in a cooking competition. Each team was given common ingredients and then one surprise ingredient to complete a meal that needed to include a vegetable, a starch and a protein and the surprise ingredient (which was Jicama, FYI.) They were then given an hour and a half in which to cook their meal, and a desert which was to be crepes – as they are the kitchen known for their crepes. The students were graded on Teamwork, Sanitation, Safety, Taste and Presentation. It was a very close race, with Princeton emerging as the winner.
