Chef Jason Triail and students from ProStart Cup

What an extraordinary event it was as our very own Chef Jason Triail had the privilege of serving as a judge at the ProStart Cup! This exhilarating cooking competition, which we proudly sponsor, brings together talented high school students from ProStart® programs across California, showcasing their culinary prowess and innovation. These students are not just participants; they represent the future pillars of our state’s vibrant restaurant and foodservice industries.

The ProStart Cup is not just any competition; it’s a platform that nurtures aspiring chefs and managers, providing them with invaluable experience and opportunities for growth. As Chef Jason witnessed firsthand, the level of talent and dedication displayed by these young chefs and future leaders is truly inspiring.

The highlight of the event was undoubtedly the award ceremony, where winning teams were celebrated for their outstanding achievements. Thanks to the generous support of the California Restaurant Foundation, deserving students were honored with medals and scholarships, paving the way for their continued success in the culinary world.

But the excitement doesn’t end there! The victorious teams will now go on to represent California at the National ProStart Student Invitational in Baltimore, MD, this April—a testament to their hard work and culinary excellence.
