February 20, 2018
On Saturday, February 10, 2018, two teams of students from The Culinary Institute of Michigan (CIM) Port Huron and Muskegon campuses earned silver, gold and best in show medals at the ACF Sanctioned Competition held in Pontiac, Michigan.
This event, sponsored by the ACF Michigan Chefs de Cuisine Association MI012, the culinary leader in offering educational resources, training, apprenticeship and programmatic accreditation, assessed the culinary prowess of the competing teams in several areas including chicken signature dishes, pastry skills and knife skills. Each team’s performance was evaluated against a set national standard via scorecard, rather than against each other.
Baker College congratulates all the participants from the CIM Port Huron and Muskegon teams for their hard work and fine representation of themselves, our institution, and their community and families! You all truly exemplify what it means to be BakerProud!
