CRTC culinary team sure can cook up a tasty three-course meal
By The Concord Insider

It’s good to be the best, especially when we’re talking about an area that includes the entire state of New Hampshire.

And you can add a group of five culinary arts students from the Concord Regional Technical Center to that list after winning the New Hampshire ProStart cooking competition at the UNH Stillings Dining Hall in Durham on March 5.

The team, made up of Chase Haines (Concord High School), Anthony Costello (Pembroke Academy), Brandon Diaz (John Stark Regional High School), Megan Fraser (Hillsboro-Deering High School) and Katherine Killam (Hopkinton High School) defeated seven other high school culinary arts programs to earn the honor of best in New Hampshire.

Now, the five CRTC culinary wizards will compete against the very best high school culinary teams from across the country in the 15th annual National ProStart Invitational culinary competition in Dallas, from April 29 to May 1.

In the state cooking extravaganza, the teams had one hour to prepare a three-course, restaurant-grade meal using just two stovetop-style burners. Timing was crucial, as the meal had to be plated within the last three minutes of the competition. Each student team had to develop a unique recipe prior to the event, testing both their culinary skills and creativity.

And let’s just say the CRTC menu will leave you feeling a little on the hungry side. Read more from
