WESTFORD — The following release was shared with WestfordCAT by Nashoba Valley Technical High School for publication.

Students in the Culinary Arts and Hospitality programs at Nashoba Valley Technical High School were really cooking on March 21.

Students and staff members started the day off competing at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough in the annual National ProStart Invitational, the country’s premier competition for high-school students focused on restaurant management and culinary arts.

Later that evening, a second group competed at the annual Taste of Nashoba competition, produced by the Nashoba Valley Chamber of Commerce and held at Lawrence Academy in Groton.

At Gillette, Nashoba Tech took second place of 16 teams. They won the award for Best Appetizer, which was a Beef & Duck Mezzaluna, and Caden Adams, a senior from Chelmsford, won the award for Best Knife Skills.

If that wasn’t enough, Chef-Instructor Carley Capraro won the award for Best Instructor. In Groton that night, the Nashoba Tech crew, under the guidance of Chef-Instructors Paul Wilson and Jeremy Bussiere, placed second in the category of Best Presentation.
