FDL HS Culinary Team Places Third In The State

Fond du Lac High School’s Culinary Team recently competed in the Wisconsin ProStart Invitational at the Wisconsin Center in Milwaukee placing third from among 26 teams across the state.


As part of the competition, the Culinary Team prepared menus, costing sheets, and a 3-course meal. They were judged on safety and sanitation (including transport of ingredients), set-up, clean up, knife skills, teamwork, food presentation, uniform, and the final product’s taste. They also have limited access to water (15 minutes) prior to the commencement of the cooking phase (60 minutes), and they are allowed only 2 burners for cooking. Every team member had a vital role in the competition and showed flawless execution at competition.


The team extends a heartfelt thank you to Chef Becca Reihn for her many years of dedicated service in being their Chef Mentor. Another thank you to the following sponsors for their support: Aramark, Scott’s Discount Printing, South Hills Country Club and Precision Overhead Door.

The 2016 Culinary Team: Coach Stephanie Fox, Sophomore Brey Mauer, Sophmore Shannon Lobajeski, Junior Trent Murtha, Senior Alyssa Reinke, Senior Bri Mielke.
