Future Top Chef Competition

CEANCI expects to hold this event again in February 2022.  In past years, FTC has seen student teams compete against each other for “best dish”.  We have worked with local restaurants, country clubs, and farms bringing new ideas each year. Region business partners judged the entries and winners were awarded chef hats.  Please watch this page for more information as we plan this awesome event!
