From February 7 to 9, a group of 11 Culinary Arts students participated in Culinary Skills USA, with three students advancing to state.

“Skills USA is a great organization where this is a lot of leadership opportunities,” culinary arts teacher Ms. Aventurado said. “They have a lot of events. Our particular events that I chose this year were Culinary Arts, Restaurant Services and Commercial Baking.”

Three students competed in Culinary Arts, two were in Restaurant Services, and five were in Commercial Baking. Senior Ty Ross placed first in Culinary Arts, senior Seth Apodaca placed second in Culinary Arts, and senior Daniel Lopez placed third in Commercial Baking.

For the Culinary Arts competition, Apodaca said they had to cook a menu that was provided by the competition. Specifically, the competitors had to cook sauteed chicken with mushroom sauce, rice pilaf, green beans, and glazed carrots in two hours. Lopez and his competitors had to make a pineapple pie and sugar cookies, also in two hours, and decorate a cake in two hours.

“We practiced a lot, like three to four times a week during and after [school],” Apodaca said.

After all the practicing, they were glad to hear that their hard work paid off. However, the road to state requires even more work.

“The menu is doubled and the time is four hours instead of two hours, so we have more work we have to do,” Apodaca said.

Lopez also mentioned that in the Commercial Baking competition, the competitors have to make two more items.

“We’re gonna practice a lot more,” Apodaca said. “I think we’ll do good.”

The three seniors will be going to state from April 5-8 in Corpus Christi.
