Thunder Mountain High School culinary students Cydney Norberg, Sydney Sabin and Royes Lumba took first place in the 2011 Alaska Pro Start Invitational Competition in Anchorage last weekend. The students had one hour to prepare a dish that included scallop seviche with cucumber avocado sauce, poached salmon on a bed of arugula, polenta and asparagus, and a mango parfait on hand-formed chocolate. The team has been invited to represent Alaska at the national competition, which takes place in the Kansas City suburb of Overland Park, Kan. in April. Chef David Moorhead of the Baranof and Kathleen Wiest, culinary instructor at TMHS, coached and prepared the team for competition.
