Pro Start

This year I was asked again to be a judge at the high school for the Pro Start team. It is kind of like the show Top Chef where they have a certain amount of time to get their meal done and then we judge them on performance, appearance and taste. It took about 2 hours and was lots of fun, this year I took my camera with to capture some moments. They compete on Tuesday in Mitchell for State, last year they won it so I hope the same happens this year. Our chef here at SDSU has been their mentor this whole year and has done a great job with them.
Here are some pictures of them prepping and actually making the meal.


Then the finished product!

This was the appetizer, salmon wrapped in baked walleye with a light salad with spicy sauce in the middle.

The entree was grilled buffalo and pheasant with berry sauce served with brown sugar potatoes and spinach.

Finally the dessert was cream de cacao with homemade chocolate mousse.

Not to mention the food was awesome!!

The competition falls on the night of prom this year so no one wanted to do it except these 3 guys. Last year they have 12 and yes there where girls last year but not this year because of prom.

Thanks for visiting Healy Happenings and come back soon!
