County Vocational-Technical School Students

to Compete in Cook-Off!


(Trenton) The New Jersey Association of Counties (NJAC) is pleased to announce that it’s hosting the 4th annual county vocational-technical school cook-off challenge at 12:30 p.m. on May 8th at Caesar’s in Atlantic City. 


“We’re delighted to once again provide culinary art students from county vocational-technical schools across the State with the unique opportunity to showcase their incredible talents,” said NJAC President and Mercer County Freeholder Ann Cannon. 


Culinary art students from county vocational-technical schools in Bergen, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Essex, Hudson, Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex, Morris, and Passaic counties have been selected to compete for titles in taste, creativity, and food presentation.  Each team will consist of 5-6 students and 2 staff members, and must produce 400 samples of appetizers at a total cost of less than $500.00.  NJAC officials, Atlantic City chefs, and convention guests will have the difficult task of judging the stiff competition, which will close NJAC’s 65th annual celebration of county government. 


“The cook-off challenge is the convention’s premiere event and I look forward to enjoying each of the fantastic dishes prepared by these remarkable young men and women as future restaurateurs and chefs,” commented Cannon. 


NJAC is committed to advocating for legislation, regulations, and policy directives that empower county governments to operate more effectively and efficiently.  As a non-partisan organization that represents the only true regional form of government in the State with a unified and proactive voice, NJAC is dedicated to advancing innovative programs and initiatives that enhance the level of service provided and save valuable taxpayer dollars.
