Culinary students gain real world experience through Culinary Team USA partnership
GLEN ELLYN – A room filled with bustling people in white coats who weave around each other to grab knives and other tools may look like a scene from a hospital’s operating room, but instead of medical masks, the coats are paired with tall, white hats.
While the chefs donning these coats and hats may not be making surgical incisions with their utensils, every cut takes them one step closer to a spot on the American Culinary Federation’s Culinary Team USA.
Twelve chefs competed in the culinary team tryouts’ hot food portion on Aug. 24 at College of DuPage’s Culinary Arts Center. While hosting the tryouts distinguishes the culinary program and the state-of-the-art facilities at College of DuPage (COD), its greatest benefit is to the students themselves, who were able to assist the professional chefs as they competed.
