I like to emcee this event, not only because I get to sample great food, but because I always find it SO inspiring and invigorating to be around such a dedicated, enthusiastic, and talented group of students, staff, and "guest chefs," as well as all of their cheering fans.
Four teams compete: students in the Arlington High School Culinary Arts Program; Arlington High School staff; an alumni team and returning this year, Team Sparrow's Nest.
Each team prepares an appetizer, entree and dessert--enough to share with the audience, who then vote for their favorite in each category. This is no easy task, believe me!
Pictured above is the delightful and talented student team who took home First Place Honors! in the Entree AND Dessert categories. (I wonder if they cook for their families at home--lucky them!)
And here is Team Sparrow's Nest, who won First Place for Best Appetitzer.
What a great event this is. And to thank for it, we have, pictured with me here, Chef (Jeremy) Losee. He's a happy looking chef, wouldn't you say? How much fun would it be learning the culinary arts from such a wonderful and skilled gentleman!
Thanks to all who worked so hard planning this event, all who participated, and a special thanks to all the wonderful local sponsors who so generously support this Program.
