Cooking to compete


West Seattle High School student Sarah Rosenthal competes Wednesday to create an entree that represents contemporary American cuisine within 40 minutes as part of the ProStart cooking competition at the high school. She was declared the winner for her kiwi macho pasta with Northwest toppers. The competition was filmed for a potential national television appearance. The National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (NRAEF) student cooking competition features students from the two-year nationwide ProStart program that develops the best and brightest talent into tomorrow's restaurant and foodservice leaders. The competition is part of Maneet Chauhan's national tour to debut her new book, Flavors of My World: A Culinary Tour Through 25 Countries. As part of her 30-day, 21-city trek across America, Maneet will be interacting with ProStart students in each city as they compete in classic cooking competitions. The ProStart curriculum is an accredited two-year restaurant school-to-career program that prepares students for careers in the food-service industry.
