More Than a Cooking Competition

The CA ProStart Cup is more than a cooking competition – it’s a life-changing experience! Imagine being 16 years old and pitching a new restaurant concept to a panel of restaurateurs. Or having hundreds of people watch you as you put the finishing touches on a three-course meal.

Leadership .  Public Speaking .  Courage . Mentorship . Life Experiences
