Land O' Lakes High School culinary arts student wins award

Land O' Lakes, FL - It looks like Land O' Lakes High School's investment in the culinary arts program has paid off for Darryus Lowe!

On Friday, May 17 at 10:30 a.m., Land O' Lakes High School culinary arts student Darryus Lowe will be awarded his prizes for winning the 2013 Let's Do Gourmet High School Recipe Challenge.

The competition, sponsored by the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association Education Foundation and Let's Do Gourmet, LLC, was open to students throughout Florida enrolled in a school program using the ProStart curriculum. 

Each student had to create a recipe consisting of a protein, vegetable, and starch, incorporating the Let's Do Gourmet Red Adobo spice into the protein portion of the recipe.

Darryus' winning recipe is pan seared pork cutlets wrapped in prosciutto and served with braised Swiss chard, baby carrots, mashed yucca, and tangy barbecue sauce (photo attached). 

He will prepare the meal for the event on Friday.  For his winning recipe, Darryus will receive a set of Let's Do Gourmet spices, two cookbooks, and a check presented by Let's Do Gourmet founder and chef, Erik Youngs.

Darryus is a freshman in the Land O' Lakes High School Culinary Arts Academy. 

The Academy is in its second year in its new state-of-the-art facility at the school, located at 20325 Gator Lane, Land O' Lakes.
