Winnipeg Junior Chef takes on the World

Junior Chef Argie Garcia

Canada will be represented at this years world culinary congress by Junior Chef Argie Garcia.

Winnipeg Chefs took home the first and second place in the Young Chefs Challenge in Toronto on January 27, 2019. Two Red River College culinary students, Argie Garcia (Apprentice Level 2) and Anthony Carino (Term 6 Culinary Arts) placed first and second in the competition . The competitors had three hours to make a three-course meal that showcased creativity, taste and kitchen organization.

These students were selected by the competition committee for their prior competition experience and constant pursuit of professionalism within the culinary industry.  The Young Chef’s Challenge in Toronto has only six competitors from across Canada, so having two Manitobans qualify is very exciting.

Argie Garcia will have the honor of representing Canada’s culinary scene on the world stage in Saint Petersburg, Russia 2020 at the World Chefs Congress.
