Local students compete in culinary competition

DIBOLL, TX (KTRE) -

Saturday morning the Diboll Civic Center was filled with the sweet aroma of culinary creations by East Texas students.

Students from Livingston, Porter, Hunstville, Central, Wells, and Diboll participated in the first Axed Culinary Competition, hoping to earn top honors for their skills in the kitchen.

As long as I think its going to be good its like she said complete relief, I did it I got it done," said Sabrina Welsh, 12th grade student, Central ISD.

Like something straight from reality TV the students were told the mystery ingredients, chicken breast, cheese puffs, avocados and evaporated milk. After that, they were given 30 minutes to come up with a game plan. 

"We go through what we have and grab anything we think we might need," said Ali, Artechi, 12th grade student, Central ISD.

 When the clocks start the students make a run for the pantry to get extra ingredients to help their dish stand out.

"And then they have an hour to execute that plan before they take their meal to the judges," said Jennifer Garcia, Family Consumer Science Teacher.

 Central Seniors, Ali Artechi and Sabrina Welsh say the competition can be stressful so team work is the key to their success.

"I love it, I find it relaxing and her she's just kind of here she's my back-up she's my best friend so it works," said Welsh.

But teachers say this competition is about more than winning a prize.

"When they leave our classroom, that they actually have something they can use, you're going to eat the rest of your life," said Garcia.

 And make each a day a little more tasty than the last.
