South Tech’s Culinary Art’s students recently participated in one of the year’s tastiest competitions! The Incredi-Bowl of Ice Cream, a collaborative event hosted by our Technical High Schools, Forest Park Community College, and Hickey College, was held on November 12th at STLCC’s Forest Park Student Center. Hundreds of ice cream enthusiasts attended to sample the wide variety of flavors offered up by St. Louis culinary students.
South Tech’s own Chryssi Magee won the People’s Choice Award for her delicious Gooey Butter Cake flavor. Our 10 competitors joined the rest of our students (23 in all) by selling baked goods to compliment the ice cream. Dean’s Country Fresh donated all of the ice cream mix used in the competition, helping support our student effort to raise a total of $2100 for our culinary scholarship fund.
The Culinary Arts major at South Tech is an immersive and engaging career and technical education (CTE) class for students who want to explore and prepare for a career or college major. CTE courses let students see for themselves the “world of work”, giving them a solid foundation of information and experience on which to build their career goals. Watch for South Tech’s Culinary Team at various competitions throughout the year!
