Baker College of Port Huron Culinary Institute of Michigan (CIM) students brought home five of the seven medals awarded to student culinarians at Detroit’s Eastern Market mystery basket competition recently. The competition was part of a fundraising event for Rising Stars Academy, a cooking school in Centerline for special-needs students ages 18-26.
There were 16 two-person teams from area culinary schools in the competition. Four teams represented Baker College of Port Huron. Each team was given 10 minutes to review a basket of “mystery” ingredients, then an hour to create a taste-tempting creation. Awards were presented for taste, presentation and Best of Show.
