The Bite of the Apprenticeship event held at RTC was our annual fundraiser for ProStart, the turnout was the most I have ever seen and the atmosphere was nothing but exciting as the six schools and six professional houses competed for best in their category and for the best overall appetizer. The food was incredible. There were lots to go around with plenty for seconds and thirds. For the first time, a Prostart High School was in the house competing with the colleges. Bonney Lake High School under Chef Kahale came ready to show what they can do. We also had a new Associate member, Cascade Deli Provisions. The president of CDP, David Lindholm came in with a beautiful display of Boars Head Meats and Cheeses for everyone to try. I know that some of you really enjoyed their table because I did not see you move away from it. David also stepped up and sponsored the bar for the event. Thank you so much for taking your time and helping the association and Prostart at this fundraising event. It was much appreciated.
The school category was won by Bates Technical College. The apprentice category was won for the second year in a row by Bell Harbor. The overall people’s choice for best in show was won by Bonney lake High School with their Raw Bar Theme. Their menu consisted of: Ahi Poke on a fried wonton chip; Hamachi tuna salad served on a cracker; Steak Tartar served on a crostini. Chef Kahale said “Our theme was Raw Raw Ohh La La!” All high end dishes that reflect our program converted into bites arranged to perfection.
