A display of culinary skills took place March 20th at Miramichi Valley High School as students from four schools competed in the annual District 16 Culinary Arts competition which this year was a regional event. Chefs Graham Tricket and Ryan Goldie watched closely as the nine participants peeled, sliced, diced and mixed then boiled, steamed, fried and baked their way to a delicious looking three course meal of salad, chicken and apple cake. The preparations were judged on taste and presentation with first place going to Cheryl Walosik of Bathurst High School. There was a tie for second between Tiffany Godin of Miramichi Valley High School and Kalika Kinnear-Benoit of Riverview High School. Kathy Landry of Miramichi Valley High School placed third. It was an industrious and intense effort on the part of the students that impressed the judges, who none-the-less, were able to provide well received tips and advice to the students to pique their interests and further their skills.
