On April 10-11, Fountain-Fort Carson High School (FFCHS) students Layla Urias and Gabriel Villalobos competed in a virtual culinary competition, the Gourmet Savory Presentation, as part of the 2021 Family Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) Virtual State Leadership Conference. For the competition, they recorded making a dish from start to finish (Urias made seafood Paella, and Villalobos made ceviche), and they both won gold medals.
Chef Luis Pagan, who taught both students in the FCCHS culinary program, gave a few details about the competition.
