At the 2010 American Culinary Federation (ACF) National Conference in Anaheim, the ACF held a tryout for the culinary Youth Team USA 2012 that would represent the USA in the 2012 Culinary Olympics (IKA) in Erfurt, Germany. The students from Oregon Coast Culinary Institute, under the coaching and mentor-ship of Randy Torres, CEC, AAC, were selected for that honor. The students had been training for several months, with members ranging from those that already had some national and international competition experience, to those that got their first taste of competing at the tryout. All these students have this in common: the dedication, and the understanding of the hard work that would be required from each of them as they prepare for the exciting culinary adventures in their young lives. Along the way, the experience, knowledge and friendship they gain on this journey will be the ultimate reward for their hard work..
