Franklin Tech holds cooking competition
Let the cooking battle begin.
Culinary students at Franklin Technology Center in Joplin competed against each other in a fashion similar to cooking shows like “Iron Chef” and “Chopped.”
Thursday’s final two teams of four were the winners of competitions earlier this week.
AM Winning Team: Hollis Cady, Kelsey Hays, Kaitlyn Rooney and Nichole Wickman.
PM Winning Team: Zach Cook, Catherine Griffith, Martin Santillian and Michelle Sherrick.
The theme of this final round was “Food at the Fair”. Students had to cook one grilled item, one item on a stick, and one sweet treat.
Winners were based on the food’s presentation, taste, and creativity.
The grand prize includes money to use for the students’ end of the school year trip.
