The Wilbur Cross High School culinary team and management teams stand for a portrait in front of the Washington Hilton in D.C. during the 2023 Prostart National Invitational.

Wilbur Cross High School in New Haven has been competing in the culinary arts for about 10 years. Despite having no budget for the program, the team began to win titles at the state and national level only a few years after they started to compete.

In this mini-doc, follow this year’s team on their journey to the national championship, where the top schools from each state will compete under pressure to create the best culinary experience in the nation.

Ryan Caron King joined Connecticut Public in 2015 as a reporter and video journalist. He was also one of eight reporters on the New England News Collaborative’s launch team, covering regional issues such as immigration, the environment, transportation, and the opioid epidemic.
