St. Joseph’s Catholic takes Gold!

Posted on March 20, 2024

The culinary team from Edmonton’s St. Joseph Catholic High School defeated 15 other teams to take gold at the High School Culinary Challenge Awards Dinner Monday, March 18. Silver went to Bev Facey High School and bronze went to Dr. Anne Anderson High School. Teams competed by cooking a three-course meal on February 24th inside the NAIT’s kitchens and were judged on preparation, timing, sanitation, presentation and of course taste!

“Year after year it’s always exciting to see the level of talent these teams bring to the kitchen,” says High School Culinary Challenge Co-Chair Chef Paul Campbell. “It’s great to witness a new generation of young chefs test their skills and walk away with a great sense of accomplishment.”

“Since 2008, the High School Culinary Challenge has been a catalyst for Edmonton’s food scene. We were thrilled to be able to host the competition in-person once again, giving these talented students a chance to showcase their skills and gain valuable experience in a professional kitchen.” – Peter Keith, High School Culinary Challenge Chair.

Three NAIT Culinary Arts Apprenticeship Program Scholarships were awarded at the Awards Ceremonies to Conall MacLellan from Victoria School of the Arts High School, Olivia Rietveld from Jasper Place High School and King Melton-Chua from M.E. Lazerte High School. The program also acknowledged four HSCC Scholarship Recipients graduating from the NAIT Culinary Arts Program – Adonis Dungog, Mary Beazer, Avery Porcina and Alice Largawo. 

It’s safe to say that the culinary arts are alive and well in Edmonton, and these chefs will all go on to do amazing things!

Coming up on May 2nd at the Mosaic Centre is the main fundraiser of the year for the HSCC – Hot Chefs Cool bEATs will include food stations, drink stations, live entertainment, a silent and live auction. Please consider joining us for an amazing evening to support the next generation of chefs!
