This competition will encompass both hot and cold food preparation and presentation. Competitors will demonstrate their knowledge and skills through the production of a four-course menu in a full day of competition. The competitors will be rated on their organization, knife skills, cooking techniques, creative presentation, sanitation food safety techniques, and, above all, the quality and flavor of their prepared items.
The SkillsUSA Illinois Championships follow the current edition of the SkillsUSA National Technical Standards. These are available to professional members (advisors and teachers) following membership registration.
