Orange Chicken: First Place in SPCBA Culinary Competition

I was delighted to learn from one of our avid readers about her recent victory in the 2010 SPCBA Culinary Competition. Apple Instrella, a student at the San Pedro College of Business Administration bagged the first prize in the recently concluded SPCBA Culinary Competition. She and her teammate entered their twist of the Orange Chicken Recipe that we featured a few months back.

Orange Chicken Entry

This achievement is significant especially for Culinary Arts students because they are able to develop self confidence and a more competitive attitude which will help them in their culinary career in the future.

I am honored that they chose one of our featured recipes as their entry. This event made me realize the value of quality that we are putting in each of our recipe posts. Expect us to continue concentrating in this aspect on the next recipes to come.

Apple and Marc

Congratulations Apple and Mark. Good Job!
