Students show off their cooking skills in Future Chefs contest

March 14, 2018

Third and fourth grade students from all across the district competed in Sodexo's annual Future Chefs Challenge event on Wednesday, March 7 at Battle Ground High School. The students demonstrated their creative culinary skills by coming up with an original, healthy after school Asian-inspired snack recipe, which they prepared and presented to a panel of judges. 

This year's guest judges were Battle Ground Mayor Mike Dalesandro and last year’s Future Chefs winner, Pleasant Valley fifth grader Beau Singer, who evaluated students' entries based on criteria such as originality and taste. 

Congratulations to the winners of this year's event! 

Daybreak Primary 3rd grader Chloe Waller took 
First Place for her "Crispy Wontons with Asian salsa."
