Chicago Careers Through Culinary Arts Competition


This past Saturday I joined students, parents and chefs atCHIC to watch 25 talented high school seniors compete in the 16th annual Careers through Culinary Arts Program (C-CAP) Chicago Cooking Competition. This inspiring nonprofit helps public high school students train and compete for scholarships to renowned culinary schools. In addition to Chicago, C-CAP has programs in Arizona, Virginia, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. 

The students were asked to prepare a two-course French meal for a panel of notable judges, including Graham Elliot Bowles of graham elliot, Carrie Nahabedian of Naha, and Mark Mendez of Carnivale.
