Shopping, Classes, and More for Enthusiasts

San Antonio High Schoolers Compete for Scholarships

San Antonio High SchoolersStudents from three San Antonio-area high schools earned scholarships to the CIA at a cook-off held at the Texas campus in April.

Each member of the winning team from John Marshall High School earned a $1,500 scholarship to the CIA. Competitors from runner up high schools Louis D. Brandeis and South San Antonio also received scholarships. Each school sent four team members and an alternate who received a "mystery basket" of ingredients from which they had to create a three-course menu. Teams had 30 minutes to set up their station and develop their menu, followed by two hours to prepare a first course (soup, salad, or appetizer), main course, and dessert to serve four—using all the items in the basket.

The CIA San Antonio offers associate degrees in Culinary Arts and Baking & Pastry Arts. Graduates can then transfer to the college's New York campus to complete bachelor's degrees in Management, Culinary Science, or Applied Food Studies.
