Held at Caesars in Atlantic City, eleven teams from throughout the state battled for top honors. Each team was evaluated in the categories of taste, station display, presentation, and ultimately favorite dish. Judges included NJAC members, professional chefs, and conference attendees.
Competing in the 8th Annual Cook-Off Challenge was a valuable work-based learning experience for all involved! Congratulations to PCTI for taking home the People’s Choice Bronze Award!
