The district congratulates Bayport-Blue Point High School student Todd Fehr for being part of the winning team to place in the top three in the American Culinary Federation Long Island Chapter’s “Ready Set Cook” High School Competition. 

During the competition, six teams of three students were paired with a professional adviser and were required to prepare a dish consisting of a whole chicken, vegetable side and carbohydrate component. After consulting with their adviser and amongst each other, the teams had one hour to prepare their dishes before presenting their final product to the judges for scoring. Each team was scored on key factors such as sanitation, organization, creativity, flavor and texture of their meals. 

The competition consisted of teams of culinary students from all three Long Island-based BOCES, as they challenged each other for the chance to win scholarships to the Culinary Institute of New York at Monroe College. Due to the team’s successes, Todd has earned the top prize of a $28,000 scholarship toward Monroe College located in the Bronx. 

In more recent news, Todd showcased his culinary skills at the SkillsUSA Regionals competition, where he took home a fourth-place win. Due to his excellent performance at the regional level, he has secured a spot in the statewide competition, set to take place April 24-26 in Syracuse, New York.
