Student's cooking skills challenged during culinary competition

Students from across the state faced off in a savory and sweet culinary challenge earlier today.  It's called the "Careers through Culinary Arts Program" and it was held at Le Cordon Bleu in Scottsdale.

The program gives students the chance to compete against the clock in a restaurant kitchen. Each student must prepare a two-course French cuisine, complete with hunter's chicken with tourne potatoes and dessert crepes with pastry cream and chocolate sauce.

"This has been a year-long process for these high school seniors... and, uh... the result of this cooking competition will be scholarships for them to go to post-secondary colleges," said Jill Smith.

The students were critiqued on their presentation, sanitation, work flow, timing, and of course, how good their meal tasted.
