Thank you Lake Minneola High School

Lake Minneola new Culinary smallGood morning friends,

I want to thank Chef Nicholas Sandora and the culinary students at Lake Minneola High School. They hosted our monthly Chef’s meeting last night and did a great job.  We also need to thank Chef Lucressie McGriff and Chef Ken Pitts, CEC and their Pro-Start winners for their great presentation.  The students that presented the “Business Plan” did an outstanding job.

As Chef Chip Cooper, CCE said, “It was better than most professional plans he has seen.”  The meet was great, the food was fantastic, and the education that these high school students provided was priceless.  I look forward to  see everyone next month (May 12th) at Leesburg High School for our annual Lake County High School Culinary Competition.  Each school will also be selling tickets for dinner.  Tickets will be limited and we are also looking for donations to help fund the event. The schools that will participate are:  Umatilla High School, Eustis High School, The Villages Charter High School, Mt Dora High School, and of course Leesburg High School.  You can purchase tickets from any of the Culinary Instructors at these schools, contact Chef Nicole Austin at or contact me at
