Good luck to #TeamSAIT at the 2020 Taste Canada Cooks the Books competition!

SAIT students and alumni compete on local, national and world stages.

From the classroom to the top of the podium, a SAIT education takes you places. SAIT students embark on the experience of a lifetime when they join a team of their peers to take on the world.

Taste Canada’s annual Cooks the Books competition brings together teams of student chefs from across Canada to battle it out by bringing their original recipes to life in under 60 minutes. #TeamSAIT claimed the top spot last year and is back to defend the title of Canada’s Best Student Chefs.

While this year’s competition will look a little different in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, coach and SAIT instructor Chef Vanessa Mendoza has made sure the experience isn’t any less fierce for her students – cause, SAIT culinary students still compete.
