Culi­nary In­sti­tute of Canada to rep­re­sent coun­try as na­tional culi­nary youth team

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - COMMUNITY -

For the next four years, stu­dents at the Culi­nary In­sti­tute of Canada in Char­lot­te­town will rep­re­sent the coun­try at in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tions as Na­tional Culi­nary Youth Team Canada.

The CIC was awarded the hon­our fol­low­ing its ex­cep­tional per­for­mance at the 2016 Culi­nary Olympics in Er­furt, Ger­many, last fall. Rather than rep­re­sent­ing the coun­try and com­pet­ing against other ju­nior chefs, they com­peted against ex­pe­ri­enced pro­fes­sional chefs as Re­gional Team P.E.I., bring­ing home two gold medals and plac­ing fourth over­all out of 57 teams. In 2012, the team also brought home a gold and sil­ver medal as Re­gional Team P.E.I.

The Na­tional Culi­nary Youth Team Canada in­cludes Is­abelle Che­varie, Que­bec; Dun­can Pursey, New Brunswick; Lind­say Arm­strong, New Brunswick; Emma Hughes, P.E.I.; and Bria Amyot, Nova Sco­tia. Chef in­struc­tor Jo­erg Solter­mann will man­age the team with chefs Kevin Boyce, Hans An­deregg, and Chris­tian March­steiner as the coach­ing staff. Their first com­pe­ti­tion will be the Na­tions Cup in Michi­gan this Oc­to­ber.

Over the next four years, they will travel to var­i­ous in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tions, cul­mi­nat­ing in the 2020 Culi­nary Olympics in Er­furt, Ger­many. By the time the team trav­els to Ger­many in four years, the ex­per­tise they will have gained through in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tions

will make the ex­pe­ri­ence in­valu­able.

“We are hon­oured to rep­re­sent Canada as the na­tional youth team. We are proud of our com­pe­ti­tion pro­gram and re­cent suc­cess as a re­gional team in Ger­many this past Oc­to­ber,” said Austin Cle­ment, pro­gram man­ager for the CIC.

“This will be our third time as Na­tional Culi­nary Youth Team

Canada, and we are look­ing for­ward to the chal­lenge ahead as we fo­cus on the podium at the 2020 Culi­nary Olympics.”

Since 2003, teams from the CIC have re­ceived na­tional and in­ter­na­tional at­ten­tion for their ex­cep­tional per­for­mance in com­pe­ti­tions in the Culi­nary Olympics, in the Na­tions Cup, which takes place in Michi­gan, at the As­so­ci­a­tion Chefs

So­ci­ety Ju­nior Cham­pi­onships in Dublin, Ire­land, in the SCOTHOT World Cham­pi­onships in Glasgow, Scot­land, and at Skills Canada Na­tional Com­pe­ti­tions in 2003 and 2004.
