Congratulations to CINY, the NY State Champions!

Decemember 2, 2017

The CINY culinary competition team had an incredible Saturday last weekend, earning the ACF New York State Championship once again (CINY also took top honors in 2015 and 2014). Congratulations to coaches Dean Frank Costantino and Chef Eric Pellizzari, team members Kathy Peralta(captain), Gianna Aquino, Jose Suarez, Joanna Parson, and Julie Velazquez, and to the team’s freshman apprentices Mathew Karlon, Lilibeth Velazquez, Katherine Cardoza, Geannaby Hernandez, and Casey Creazzo. The team will next compete at regionals in Buffalo, NY late next month. Congratulations to senior Nicholas Giambrone, who will be competing at nationals as well. He earned an invitation to compete individually in the Student Chef of the Year competition. Well done, everyone!
