Future Chefs Competition held for Benton Harbor area students


Benton Harbor Area School students were busy Thursday evening but not with homework. The Future Chefs Competition was held at the STEAM Academy at MLK in Benton Harbor, Michigan. 

More than 60 students submitted sandwich recipes as they took part in the competition. On Thursday, the three finalists competed in the kitchen to see who would make the best sandwich. The event was sponsored by SodexoMAGIC Services and looked to teach students about areas of health and wellness when it comes to food.  

Audience members were able to try the creations from each of the participants. There were three judges who then made their decision based on taste, appearance, kid-friendliness, overall presentation and ease of preparation.  

The winner was Morton Montessori third-grader Miles Taylor. He took home first place with his "Super Savory Donut Sandwich." Although the word donut is in the name, there is no donut in the sandwich at all. It was only given that name because the bread was cut in the shape of a circle.  

"This sandwich means so much to me because I made it," says Miles. "And it'd be cool to sell it at restaurants. And people will remember me for making the Sweet Savory Donut Sandwich." 

Taylor will now advance to the next round as the representative of the Benton Harbor Area Schools. He will take on more than 150 other district winners throughout the nation. All the finalists went home with a certificate as well as gift baskets, which included food and cooking utensils.
