Culinary arts students at Plantation High School have whipped together their own three part competition, modeled after the network TV series “Chopped,” under the direction of their instructor Chef Dee Lennox. The first two rounds of competition included an appetizer and entrée, while the upcoming and final round consists of a dessert challenge.
To sweeten the competition pot, the 15 competing students had to create their cuisine using a mystery ingredient. Each challenge is 30 minutes and is judged by school administrators. Judging is based on presentation, use of ingredients and taste.
MEDIA ARE INVITED TO COVER THIS EVENT.
