Culinary Students Compete For Sous Chef Spot At The Grape Escape

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Culinary students at the Institute of Technology competed on Friday to be sous chefs at the Grape Escape.

They’ll get the opportunity to assist five local chefs, who will go head-to-head in a chef’s challenge.

The students are tested on knife skills and an artichoke benedict they prepared in less than 90 minutes.

“The right consistency of the artichoke, how it’s prepared, how the egg is poached, is the hollandaise sauce seasoned correctly?,” chef instructor Philippe Cillot said of what the students were tested on.

The winner will get first pick of what chef they want to work with. The Grape Escape is June 1 at Cesar Chavez Park.
