Ypsilanti students prepare Jamaican jerk chicken for astronauts in NASA culinary competition

YPSILANTI, MI - A group of Ypsilanti Community High School students have been tinkering with a menu fit for astronauts that they’ll put to the test during an upcoming culinary challenge hosted by NASA.

Ypsilanti’s Regional Career Technical Center Culinary Arts and Bakery Science Team is one of 10 teams nationwide that will travel on April 13 to Houston, Texas, to participate in the NASA HUNCH Culinary Challenge. The Astronaut Culinary Challenge develops food items for the astronauts aboard the International Space Station from a general theme idea.

RCTC Culinary Arts is in Top 10 in the Country!

The RCTC NASA HUNCH Culinary Challenge team has been named top 10 in the USA! They will be traveling to Houston, TX, and the Johnson Space Center to prepare a meal for astronauts and the Johnson Space Center Food Lab team. The other nine teams competing are from all over the country.
The winning team will receive a full-ride scholarship to Sullivan University, the National Center for Hospitality Studies in Louisville, KY.
Congratulations, Chef Gaertner and students! We are so proud of your accomplishments!
