 A Capital Region BOCES Career and Technical School (CTE) will compete against some of the top chefs in the area during the annual Culinary Cornucopia contest later this month.

Jessica Shultis, a CTE senior from Schalmont, will partner with CTE teacher Paul Dolan to compete against some of the top chefs in the region in the all-day event on Nov. 15.

The Cornucopia — a fundraiser for Living Resources — is being hosted by CTE, with chefs preparing their gastronomical delights starting at 9 a.m. on at the school. A salon featuring the food will take place at the Albany Marriott starting at 6 p.m. that evening.

Dolan, Mark Brucker and Paul Dolan will oversee the daylong preparations at the school prior to the salon.

Shultis said she still hasn't decided what to prepare for the event, but she is looking forward to it.

"I like it because taking part in this competition it will give me an edge, a competitive advantage when I apply for college and look for a job," she said.

Shultis plans to attend SUNY Delhi in pursuit of culinary arts degree.

The annual Culinary Cornucopia dinner highlights the innovative and highly edible talents of those participating in the morning competition while raising funds and awareness for Living Resources, which provides a range of support services for individuals with developmental disabilities.
