CHS Culinary students win Best Food at Taste of Cleveland

Cleveland High School Culinary Arts students accept their award for Best Food at the Taste of Cleveland event on Wednesday, April 19.

Taste of Cleveland, hosted by the Greater Cleveland Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday, April 19, at the Cleveland Civic Center, was hailed a success as hundreds of people turned out to sample the varied food options offered by local businesses, organizations and churches. The theme this year was “Tastes From Around the World.”

Attendees were asked to vote their choice for Best Food, Best Dessert and Best Booth. The Golden Chef/Best Food award went to Cleveland High School’s Culinary Department, which offered mini beef Wellingtons. The Best Dessert award went to La Costa Seafood and Bar with Chef Jim Condra’s Bananas Foster Bread Pudding. La Costa also won last year with another variety of their famous bread puddings made by Chef Condra.

The Best Booth award went to the Health Center of Southeast Texas. The booth had a safari theme and was decorated with animal print balloons, mock trees and Zebra cakes.
