Two teams from the JTED @ Mountain View Culinary Arts program will travel to North Charleston, South Carolina in April to compete in the National ProStart Invitational. Students from instructors Becky Yim and Warren Weekes' classes will compete against 500 culinary students from across the nation for scholarships in front of industry leaders, National Restaurant Association Education Foundation Trustees, state restaurant associations, and family and friends.
One team will compete in the Management category. They will be required to develop a proposal for a unique restaurant concept for industry judges, and be tested on addressing challenges faced by managers daily.
The other team will will prepare a three-course meal in 60 minutes, using only two butane burners, without access to running water or electricity for the Culinary competition.
