9th Annual H-E-B High School
For Paella Challenge host Chef Johnny Hernandez, being an advocate for culinary education is paramount. That is why he introduced the High School Paella Challenge in 2012. For the event's eighth year, Chef Hernandez made a commitment to empower local and surrounding area high school culinary programs by inviting them to participate in their own version of the Paella Challenge competition. Alongside professional, award-winning chefs from around the country and Mexico, these students gather around their paella pans and burners, proudly wearing their chef whites and displaying their school colors with banners hung up at their stations. Each school is given an invaluable opportunity to put their culinary skills to the test - but only one school comes out on top, winning an all-expenses-paid trip to the Culinary Institute of America campus in Hyde Park, New York.
