Ultimate "Top Chefs:" Giamya, Cici, Jose, Aaminah, and Naiomi

With Culinary Arts returning for a second year at ZMCS, last week marked their first “Top Chef” Competition of the year. Mrs. Loiacano and Mr. Lattimore have made waves in their classroom by putting students’ skills to the test! At the end of every quarter, students team up, create their own menu, and serve their dishes to celebrity judges. After the students have perfected their dishes, they must introduce what they have prepared, how they have prepared it, and answer any questions the judges might have. This exercise puts their cooking skills to the test while also helping them practice social skills necessary for school and life. To see how the groups did during the competition, click here.


One group from every class receives the honor of being “Top Chef Finalists.” These groups receive chef aprons as an award for their outstanding dishes and efforts. Of these chosen groups, one stands alone as the “Ultimate Top Chef.” This high-standing group receives chef aprons and hats! With the skills they have learned, these students are ready to enter into the bigger world of Culinary Arts.

Congratulations to the winning groups and thank you to all ZCMS Culinary Arts students for your hard work and dedication this quarter!
