On Friday, October 12, 2012, and Saturday, October 13, 2012, students from the Culinary Arts Program at Western School of Technology & Environmental Science catered for the Catonsville Kennel Club’s Annual Dog Show, hosted at the Howard County Fairgrounds.

In preparation for this event, the 17 attending sophomores dismantled the school’s kitchen, loaded the kitchen’s appliances and cooking utensils onto a truck, and assembled a makeshift cooking station on-site at the fairgrounds. Following construction, the students, under the direction of teacher and chef Lisa Christhilf, prepped, prepared, and served original entrees to the 125 event judges.

Christhilf is the 2012 recipient of ProStart’s National Teacher of the Year Award. ProStart refers to the curriculum for the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (NRAEF). The NRAEF recognizes professionals who succeed in cuisine preparation and execution inside the kitchen, as well as promotion of an appreciation for the culinary arts outside the kitchen.

The dog show is an annual event for both the Catonsville Kennel Club and the Western Tech Culinary Program. Each year, the Catonsville Kennel Club sponsors the event and directs proceeds toward financing equipment and technology purchases, field trip expenditures, and other curriculum necessities for the culinary program.

In addition to catering for the dog show, on Saturday, October 27, 2012, the Western Tech Culinary Program will cater for the Believe in Tomorrow Foundation’s 30th Anniversary Benefit and Auction, to be held at M&T Bank Stadium.
