Mad­di­son com­peted in the live kitchen class for pasta, live restau­rant class for mock­tails and static class for cup­cakes. She took home sil­ver in all three classes.

The com­pe­ti­tion gave the stu­dents an in­sight into what it is like to work in a com­mer­cial kitchen un­der time pres­sure. The day was a stress­ful but ex­cit­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for all of the stu­dents in­volved. Their achieve­ments proved the pas­sion the stu­dents have for the art of cook­ing and in­spired them to fur­ther their skills in the hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try.
