BNHS Top Chef


On Monday Feb. 26 our Belvidere North Commercial foods class went to the Rockford Country club to compete in a top chef competition. From North there were seven different teams that competed and North placed 1st through 3rd.

The first place winners were Rio Foytik, Amanda Lawson, Sami Haase, and Erin McCarty. Their winning dish was a mediterranean chicken wrap.  The second place winners were Jovanny Ramirez, Leo Rodriguez, Christian Serrano, and Leslie Garcia. They made a bacon pesto burger.

All of the students there did a good job and were only a few points away from winning. The Rockford Country Club was very pleased with how everything turned out and all the kids there got a job application to fill out for a summer job there. Mrs Lovens, one of the food teachers, was also  very happy with the way the students competed and thought that,“everything was made great.”

“I think that the whole experience was great especially because my team and I didn’t think that we were going to win. The whole experience gave me a new look at the food restaurant industry. I was very happy that I had the opportunity to show people what we have been working on and practicing for awhile now, said Amanda Lawson (18).”
