That's us, the JCCC Culinary Team. In the kitchen we're focused, intense and striving for perfection. 

We are a group of 13 JCCC students who work extremely hard with a full load of classes, full-time jobs, and and a commitment to the culinary competing team.

Why do we push ourselves for the culinary team?  We compete out of a desire to learn as much as possible, out of dedication to our chosen field, and to challenge ourselves to improve and grow. We show up at 6 a.m. for team practices, create competition menus, practice, perfect the final product, and then critique, review, evaluate, refine and look for ways to make our entry even better.  As a team we share ideas, assist and encourage each other.   


After winning our regional championship in March, we brought home a silver medal from the American Culinary Federation National Conference. Now we have our sights set on gold at the Culinary Olympics in Erfurt, Germany!  This prestigious competition began in 1900 and takes place every 4 years. It is the ultimate display of culinary talents; a place where more than 1600 chefs, pastry chefs and culinary artists from over 50 countries gather to compete and showcase the newest gastronomic trends.  

This project is an enormous undertaking and brings with it expenses beyond the limits of our budget and customary fundraising efforts.  Not only travel expenses such as airfare and room and board, but also entry fees for each student, plates, knives, chef uniforms and so much more go into this renowned event. We would deeply appreciate any contribution you could make towards helping us get to the Olympics!




Beautiful 5 course plates from last week's critique!
